Cleveland Utilities in Cleveland, Tennessee, has proactively
embraced the benefits of trenchless solutions to rehabilitate
its existing aging infrastructure in a cost-effective and
customer-sensitive manner. In addition to its ongoing
cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) gravity sewer rehabilitation
program, they recently replaced a 20-year old cement
mortar lined ductile iron gravity sewer pipeline that was
failing due to hydrogen sulfide corrosion.
The existing 14-inch pipeline was located within the R.O.W. of
US 27, a major four lane arterial collector road that has significant
commercial development in Cleveland. Standard CIPP could not be
utilized due to the severe deterioration of the existing ductile iron
pipe and open-cut replacement would have been both expensive
and socially undesirable due to the substantial traffic control and
business interruption it would require.
