Chemical Grouting Saves the Day for Wheeling, IL Manhole Project
Manhole structures are an integral part of our wastewater systems. These structures just like main sewer systems and the lateral sewer systems they are connected to have issues with I and I (inflow and infiltration).
Groundwater enters the sewer systems through cracks and crevices and the sewage treatment plant is faced with the burden of treating and releasing this additional water flow.
At times in periods of heavy precipitation, the sewage treatment facilities cannot handle the excess flow and have to release untreated wastewater into rivers and streams. This is a rising epidemic across our country due to the aging sewage collection systems.
Communities across the country are looking for economical solutions. Chemical grouting is one of the most effective solutions.
Our experienced team at American Trenchless Technologies recently sealed a manhole in Wheeling, IL. It had groundwater leaking into it though compromised joints.
Traditional dig and replace methods would have meant considerably more repair time, much greater expense and a lot of disruption to the shopping area. We were able to complete the job for a fraction of the cost, time commitment and disruption of business by using our industry-leading chemical grouting injection process. If you’re experiencing manhole leakage call the professionals at American Trenchless Technologies for an ideal solution.
