Majority of sewers were built a long time ago and are reaching their end-of-service life. The average sewer in the US is 45 years old and they were designed to only last 50 – 80 years.
New Demands From Increased Runoff
Climate change increases frequency and magnitude of rain events. Additionally, urbanization causes more areas to be sealed and higher population density generating higher rain- and wastewater runoff to be drained by sewers.
An army of people has been responsible for ensuring that our sewers operate uninterrupted everyday. But large parts of the current workforce will retire in the next decade and with them the knowledge will be lost.
THE THREAT TO SEWERS
Under Nearly Every Road Is a Sewer
In the US and EU alone, there are about 2.4 million miles of public sewers. Sewers are a major foundation of public health and environmental protection as they transport wastewater and rainwater from households to treatment plants.
