With century old infrastructure, Granite City, IL embraces floods every spring by virtue of its location in the Great American Bottoms. The stress on the system is obvious as infiltration is blamed for sinkholes and foundation failures.
Infiltration undermines our sewer systems, destroys the bedding of our pipes, and forces tax-payers into excessive costs treating twice the flow than necessary. Systematically, communities are controlling infiltration with "test and seal" programs using chemical grout.
Communities large and small battle infiltration. Miami-Dade is the 6th largest Water and Sewer District in the U.S. and reducing flow 128 MGD to their treatment operations. Chemical grout is the low-cost, high-reward strategy for reducing I&I at Miami-Dade with defensible justification of saving $2.50 in cost for every dollar invested in their maintenance program.
