OBIC Certified Installer Selected for Manhole Rehabilitation Project

Advanced Rehabilitation Technology, an OBIC certified installer, was recently contracted to rehabilitate 350 sewer manholes in the town of Tonawanda, New York. One of the biggest challenges facing the ART installation teams was limited access to some of the manholes needing rehabilitation.

Despite this challenge, every manhole was successfully rehabilitated while maintaining good relationships with the residents and zero damage to the golf course.

Inflow & Infiltration

What is inflow & infiltration? When groundwater or stormwater enters dedicated sanitary sewer systems, inflow & infiltration is occurring. Most inflow & infiltration, or I&I, is caused by aging infrastructure that includes manholes and sewer pipes.

Infiltration is when clean groundwater enters the sewer collection system. A great example of this is when heavy rain or snowmelt penetrates the ground and raises the groundwater level. That ground flow can infiltrate sewer pipes and manholes through cracks
