Attendees and their guests gathered to hear Daniel Magill, president for Avanti International, speak at the June 5 Gulf Coast Chapter UCTA (Underground Construction Technology Association) general luncheon meeting held at the Houston Engineering and Scientific Society Building.

The American Bottom, or Bottoms, is a Southern Illinois area of 175-square miles in the flood plain of the Mississippi River, protected from flooding by a system of levees and canals. The cities in the American Bottom, such as Granite City, IL (population 30,000), have to contend with seasonally high, fluctuating groundwater, which can have a disastrous effect on underground facilities like sewers.

Rehabilitating sanitary sewer laterals was the subject of a recent series of articles that focused on legal issues regarding ownership of laterals and the emergence of trenchless methods for lateral rehabilitation.

However, another key element in dealing with laterals involves point repairs that effectively address inflow and infiltration (I&I) problems that are structurally sound and do not require rehabilitation.

Aries Industries, with the additional expertise of Avanti International, Logiball and DeNeef and in cooperation with the University of Houston's CIGMAT grout specialty engineering group, has announced two workshops to take place in mid-January 2011 in Pompano Beach, Florida. The workshops are a Refresher Course for Sewer System Managers, Specification Writers and Inspectors on Jan. 18, and the three-day Sewer Infiltration Control Test and Sealing Equipment Seminar for Operators and Inspectors Jan. 19-21.

Most sewer infiltration enters structurally sound sewer systems through joints, manholes, service connections and the first few feet of the service lateral. This infiltration adds to treatment costs and increases the risk of sanitary sewer overflows (SSOs). A proven and economical way to permanently stop these leaks is with chemical grout.

Many United States municipalities and utility districts face federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) mandates to correct water quality problems caused by discharges from combined sanitary and storm sewer systems.
