New equipment and techniques were used to repair service lateral piping in two sanitary sewer basins in Salem, Oregon. The object was to reduce infiltration and inflow (I/I) significantly. The project included identifying, testing, inspecting, and repairing the faulty piping. The importance of repairing service laterals was well demonstrated. If these are faulty, particularly near the sewer main, repairing mains and manholes will do little to reduce peak l/l's. No single repair method was best for all service lateral installations.
