For most municipalities in the U.S., wastewater collection system rehabilitation has received the least amount of attention and capital of all public works projects, especially compared to the other infrastructure dollars that are spent on bridges, roads and other utilities. Typically, sewage collection construction and rehabilitation is directed at prolonging the life of hidden assets, increasing capacity and improving overall efficiency.
