Wastewater/Sewer System Design


Sewers are usually pipelines that begin with connecting pipes from buildings to one or more levels of larger underground horizontal

Vertical pipes, called manhole, connect the mains to the surface.
Sewers are generally gravity powered, though pump may be used if necessary.
