Inflow and infiltration is insidious. It brings sand and sediment into pipes, prematurely wears lift station pumps, and can overwhelm treatment facilities, which can lead to a whole host of other problems.

On Nov. 18, in conjunction with Avanti International, National Power Rodding (Carylon Corp) and the Naperville (Illinois) Department of Public Utilities, Municipal Sewer & Water will be hosting a webinar on the subject of grouting as a complementary method of I&I control.

CIPP has been a widely accepted approach to solving all sorts of pipe maladies for some time now, but grouting hasn’t yet earned an equal reputation. When addressing I&I specifically, however, CIPP has its limitations. What Naperville has discovered, with great results, is that grouting can pay perfect complement to CIPP and effectively make up for those limitations.

There are many factors to consider when choosing grout types and application methods. They all have their strengths and weaknesses, but if you understand the basics, you’ll have a much easier time selecting materials and methods that will serve your system well. Understanding how grout and CIPP can be used together can greatly increase the potential for positive results.

Learn directly from Naperville wastewater collections and pumping supervisor Tony Conn, National Power Rodding project manager John Manijak and Avanti International vice president of marketing and education Don Rigby, who will share lessons they’ve learned in their own work. The webinar will outline how to establish and execute a plan of action to resolve infiltration.

MSW editor Luke Laggis will serve as moderator for this 60-minute, live online learning event. Participation is free and earns 1 PDH credit.
