Sewer Pipeline

Sewer pipeline is probably one of the oldest types of pipeline systems in existence. Usage of this type of pipeline has been traced back to thousands of centuries. Archaeological excavations have unearthed many such systems made of orange colored clay such as that of timeless pottery pieces. Today, this same orange colored clay pipe material is still the most commonly used for sewage related pipeline construction. This is because of its ability to withstand disintegration from strong acids such as those in harsh chemicals and other liquid pollutants that would otherwise eat through any other type of pipe material.

Originally, these sewer pipe systems were used to irrigate crops using gravity-fed water from local rivers. Not all pipes were cast in a circular shape. In fact, some pipes were cast into a square shapes, with the top part of the pipe open and exposed. These pipes were used to carry away human waste product.

Commercial Sewer Contractors

Commercial sewer contractors specialize in the installation and maintenance of subsurface utility pipeline infrastructure. The jobs they perform are typically on a much larger scale than residential projects and require use of specialty equipment such as heavy duty excavation machinery.

Commercial sewer contractors perform work on underground sewer systems, storm water drainage systems, and water pipeline. These types of jobs are categorized as "wet" utility construction. Design blueprints for commercial construction are usually created by civil engineers and require contractors with specialized licenses to comply with state and federal guidelines.

Sewer Main Contractors

Sewer main contractors perform a myriad of jobs related to private and public sewer systems. Due to the fact that sewer pipes can cause substantial damage if improperly installed or accidentally damaged, contractors undergo substantial training prior to working at construction sites.

Any time a person hires sewer main contractors they need to make certain that contractors are licensed, certified, and hold required work permits and insurance coverage. Additionally, it's important to work with experienced contractors that are familiar with the specific type of installation processes.

Sewer Contractor

Hiring a sewer contractor is necessary whenever a sewer system has to be installed, fixed, or cleaned out. Due to the fact that sewer systems have untreated waste and environmental toxins, systems must be cleaned and repaired by skilled technicians. Otherwise, wastewater and pollutants could be released into the environment.

When employing the services of a sewer contractor it is essential to work with reputable companies that employ licensed contractors. Any contractor that works on sewer lines needs to have appropriate business licenses, liability and workman's comp insurance, and state and county work permits.

Sewer Construction

Sewer construction refers to the various procedures involved with installing sewer pipelines. Since sewers transport contaminated waste, the design and installation of pipes must abide by EPA guidelines.

Sewer construction can be associated with most new types of construction projects. Systems and installation procedures will vary depending on whether projects are residential, commercial, or municipal.

Sewer Contractors

Sewer contractors are charged with the task of installing, repairing, and maintaining sewer pipeline. This field requires special training to comply with Environmental Protection Agency regulations. Improper installation or repair could result in the release of environmental toxins and sewage into communities and rural areas.

Sewer contractors tend to specialize in one specific field, such as residential, commercial, or public works, but might possess experience in all realms. Sewer pipeline contractors have to be licensed and insured and acquire proper permits prior to commencing with work.

Sewer Maintenance

Sewer systems are sensitive creatures which are why maintaining them is so important. If sewer pipelines are not well maintained, they can cause foul odors throughout neighborhoods. This may be a good indication that sewers may be backing up. Sewer pipeline systems should be maintained regularly, cleaned as necessary or simply improved upon with newer and oftentimes larger diameter pipelines in order to withstand more usage, as new residential, commercial and industrial areas become developed.

Sewer pipeline maintenance and improvements will help avoid potential disasters such as those which may result in major "prohibited discharge" violations associated with the Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) . That is why it's imperative to have a functioning sewer system that runs as smooth as possible. This also means that preventive efforts need to be shared for both the home owner and the City or Sanitary District responsible for the sewer pipeline upkeep.

Sewer Laterals

Sewer laterals are connections in sewer pipeline construction that are common whenever installing new pipe or improving current sewer pipeline systems for both public and private construction projects. Sewer lateral connections are the actual material and methods used to join a sewer line coming from a private property (sewer lateral) to the public sewer main line. Three most common sewer lateral connections are wye connection, saddle connection, and cut-in-wye connection.

The most common type of sewer lateral connections to sewer main pipelines are wye connections. Wye sewer lateral connections are manufactured in the shape of the alphabet letter "y". This type of connection is installed whenever there is a new sewer pipeline installation requiring new sewer laterals to individual properties. Unlike pressurized water pipeline systems, sewer and storm drainage systems are designed using gravity flow wherever possible. The "y" shape is more favorable to the gravitational flow pattern of sewer systems by directing flow of sewage into the same direction as the flow in the public sewer main line. Therefore, sewer main lines are less likely to have any clogs or backup. ye connections are made by attaching wye material to the ends of sewer main line pipe as the main line is being installed. Wye connections are installed at designed and required locations for the new laterals. Sewer wye connections are available in various types of material including polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and vitrified clay pipe (VCP) material, but typically, these sewer lateral wye materials are made of the same material as the sewer main line (i.e. a VCP sewer main will have a VCP material wye sewer lateral connection as well).

Sewer Manholes

Sewer maintenance holes, or "sewer manholes",as they are commonly referred to, are built out of concrete and provide a human access point for the maintenance of the sanitary sewer system.  These manholes come in a variety of sizes, but the most common are 48" and 60" diameter manholes.

Manholes are located in the city right-of-way along the path of the sewer main and are installed at approximately every 300 LF to 400 LF of sewer main line and are also built at intersecting main lines and at turns in the main line.
