A New and Improved Approach to Sewer Renewal

Faced with aging and failing wastewater conveyance systems, municipalities and sewer utilities are struggling with the challenges of providing responsive, cost-effective solutions for sewer renewal.

Join Keith McHale, P.E. as we explore the limitations of conventional sewer renewal systems and the advantages pressure sewer systems provide wastewater utilities for remedying infiltration and inflow problems in buried infrastructure.

The Rise of Intelligent Pressure Sewers

Efficient and predictable operation of a sewer collection system is critical during design, construction and operation of the network. Pressure sewer systems are proven to offer efficiency and predictability, but there is always opportunity for improvement. Smart control systems such as OneBox represent a step change in how collection systems can be conceived, designed and operated. These control systems give the designer and the operator the ultimate flexibility to deliver predictable flow to downstream infrastructure by shifting or smoothing diurnal peaks. This enables the infrastructure, from the pipe network to the treatment plant, to be designed around actual flows instead of estimated or worst-case flows. The operator can monitor the system in real time and is notified about any issues far in advance of users, which minimizes operational costs and maximizes customer satisfaction. These systems are already in use in Australia and New Zealand, with more than 5,000 operating units in excess of four years. 

Join E/One as we welcome the developers of this technology from Australia. Learn about the development of the product, system design methodology, and how E/One can help investigate a smart LPS option for your next sewer project.

The Anatomy of a Pressure Sewer Project

Gravity sewer service is not always available or feasible. A cost effective solution that can provide the same level of service is a pressure sewer system. Previously considered an alternative sewer system, pressure sewers are now common and reliable. This presentation will discuss in detail how to implement a successful pressure sewer project.

New Life Cycle Costing Tool for Sewer Systems

How much does a sewer system cost? What are the life cycle costs of a sewer system? This webinar provides a holistic overview of life cycle cost analysis and the cost advantages provided by pressure sewer systems. 

Pressure sewer systems have become a viable alternative to conventional gravity sewers. The advantages of low pressure sewer systems over new construction of gravity sewers or renewal/rehabilitation of failed gravity sewers include low construction costs, fewer community impacts (lower social costs) and lower environmental impact and disturbance.

Funding Your Municipal Wastewater Project

Funding vital municipal wastewater projects in the current economic and political climate is challenging at best. Project priority lists seeking funding continue to grow, but realistic financing is scarce. The Sustainable Water Infrastructure Investment Act will open the door to $5 billion annually in private investment in water and wastewater infrastructure projects by lifting these projects from under the state volume cap on private activity bonds (PABs).

Join us for this most important webinar dedicated to understanding and activating legislation crucial to sewering communities nationwide. Panelists will include Vanessa Leiby of WWEMA, and Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-NJ).

Low Pressure Sewer Systems: Providing a Sustainable Solution for Sewer Renewal

As municipalities and sewer utilities move to repair, rehabilitate, or replace aging and failing sewer systems, many are starting to put an emphasis on providing a sustainable solution. Developed more than 40 years ago, low pressure sewer (LPS) systems have become a viable and appropriate alternative to conventional gravity sewers.

Traditionally, LPS systems have been used to provide central sewer service to areas where gravity sewer could not be installed, or the cost to do so was prohibitive. Now, LPS systems are gaining growing widespread acceptance in providing a viable and cost-effective alternative for renewal of failed gravity collection sewers and to address problems associated with wet weather events.

Prefurbia: Reinventing Land Development from Disdainable to Sustainable

Author and land development insider Rick Harrison takes us through "Prefurbia: Reinventing Land Development from Disdainable to Sustainable." He defines sustainability as it relates to today's land developments, looks at the "Neighborhood Marketplace," designing of interior spaces as a function of the overall neighborhood design, and new products that will help improve living spaces for many years to come.

Since 1994, Rick Harrison Site Design Studio has been an industry leader in land development innovation. Rick has developed many successful communities throughout the US.

After the Flood:Two Communities Replace Gravity with Pressure Sewer

Groundwater infiltration and/or flooding caused communities in different parts of the country to arrive at the same solution. Tune in for this tale of two towns, and find out how they solved an expensive infrastructure problem  with an innovative technology that’s been around for over forty years. Faced with failing gravity sewers resulting in rain events overloading their wastewater treatment plants, these communities chose pressure sewer upgrades. Significant savings on facility upkeep, treatment and electric costs have followed.

If you are planning a central sewer rehabilitation or replacement project, this is a must-see event. In today's challenging economic environment, more municipalities and engineering firms are relying on the pressure sewer solution. Find out about the economic and environmental aspects of pressure sewer,  and learn about what helps ensure homeowner satisfaction before, during and after project completion, all from the operator/owners’ perspective.

Evaluating and Deploying a Pressure Sewer System

Various sewer alternatives, including gravity, vacuum and pressure sewer will be explored. This program includes design, installation and O&M content, which will prove useful to anyone involved in the decision making and execution of a collection sewer program.

If you are planning a septic tank replacement project, this is a must-see event. In today's challenging economic environment, more municipalities and engineering firms are relying on the pressure sewer solution. Find out about the economic and environmental aspects of pressure sewer that can make or break a project. And learn about what helps ensure homeowner satisfaction before, during and after project completion.

Pressure Sewer Design: The Key Elements Toward Saving Time and Money for Your Customers

This webinar reveals the ins and outs of grinder pump driven pressure sewer design and provides a glimpse at what type of performance successful applications should achieve. Proper pressure sewer design can save your customers well over 50 percent of what typical gravity designs cost. The benefits of these systems also include less environmental disruption due to smaller pipe sizes, shallower and speedier installation, and lower O&M cost.
