The rehabilitation of sanitary sewers, significantly reducing infiltration/inflow has been difficult to achieve. A major reason for the disappointing I/I reductions achieved by many sewer rehabilitation efforts is the inability to satisfactorily locate and repair faulty service laterals. Service laterals are frequently major I/I contributors. The identification of I/I contributing service laterals is often difficult. Few methods and little equipment have been developed to either locate faulty service laterals or repair them. This project utilized and evaluated most service lateral testing, and repair methods used in the USA today.
