Culvert Repairs & Rehabilitation

Sewer and culvert rehabilitation is the process of repairing or renewing the functionality of existing sewer and culvert systems, without necessarily replacing them entirely.

The primary aim of these activities is to extend the system’s service life and maintain or improve its performance. This is an important aspect of urban infrastructure management and is usually carried out by municipal or public utility agencies.

Key Points About Sewer & Culvert Rehabilitation:

1. Condition Assessment: The first step in any rehabilitation project is to assess the current condition of the sewer or culvert. This typically involves visual inspections, CCTV surveys, and sometimes non-destructive testing methods.

2. Rehabilitation Techniques: Depending on the condition of the system and the specific damage or wear observed, different rehabilitation techniques may be used. These include methods such as relining (installing a new pipe inside the existing one), grouting (filling in voids and leaks with a cementitious or chemical grout), pipe bursting (breaking the old pipe and pulling a new one in its place), and more.

3. Benefits: Rehabilitation can be a cost-effective alternative to full replacement, especially for systems located under busy roads or important structures where excavation is expensive or disruptive. It can also generally be performed faster, minimizing the impact on users of the system.

4. Materials: Different materials can be used in the rehabilitation process. These could include thermoplastics like PVC or HDPE, fiberglass, epoxy resins, cementitious materials, and others. The choice of material depends on the needs of the specific rehabilitation project and the properties required (such as strength, flexibility, chemical resistance, etc.).

5. Environmentally Friendly: Rehabilitation techniques are generally more environmentally friendly than traditional open-cut replacement methods, causing less disruption and damage to surrounding environments and ecosystems.

It’s important to note that while rehabilitation can extend the life and improve the performance of sewer and culvert systems, regular inspection and maintenance are still necessary to ensure their long-term functionality.

Key Steps Involved in Sewer & Culvert Rehabilitation:

  1. Inspection and Condition Assessment
  • Visual inspection using CCTV cameras sends a robotic crawler through the sewer/culvert to identify defects and problem areas.
  • Structural integrity testing using techniques like electroscan, laser profiling, sonar, etc.
  • Hydraulic capacity testing to check for bottlenecks and flow issues.
  1. Cleaning and Preparation
  • High pressure jetting to clean interior surfaces.
  • Removing roots, debris, encrustations, etc. that may interfere with rehabilitation.
  • Repairing sections of collapsed pipe if needed.
  1. Selection of Rehabilitation Method
  • CIPP (cured-in-place-pipe) liners for corrosion, cracks, leaks etc.
  • Pipe bursting to replace pipe while minimizing surface disruption.
  • Segmental sliplining to insert new pipe into old pipe.
  • Grouting for sealing cracks and filling voids.
  1. Installation/Rehabilitation
  • Bypass pumping flow around work area if needed.
  • Install selected rehab technology per manufacturer specifications.
  • CCTV inspection to confirm proper installation.
  1. Reinstatement and Testing
  • Reconnect service connections.
  • Test for leaks, flow capacity.
  • Final CCTV inspection.
  • Reinstate surface/environmental impacts.
