Sewers: Replacement and New Construction is a detailed guide to the management and construction of new sewer systems. Different construction and replacement techniques, such as jacking, moling and ramming, are described and evaluated. The importance of proper site preparation and management is emphasised, and detailed guidance is given to pre-construction investigation as well as to managing traffic and public relations during the construction period. Geoffrey Read, one of the UK's leading experts on sewer construction, has compiled the most detailed account available on this subject, using material from civil engineers, consultants and his own wide experience. *Comprehensive coverage of technical and management issues *Expert contributions from industry professionals ensure the content is practical *Photographs and diagrams illustrate key techniques

In the past decade, the field of trenchless technology has expanded rapidly in products, equipment, and utilization. This expansion would not have occurred without a strong increase in economic incentives to the user. Because the operating environment has changed, trenchless technology is often the preferred alternative to traditional methods of digging holes and installing conduits. The infrastructure in which we live has become more congested and has to be shared by several users. In addition, the cost of restoring a road or landscaped area after construction may be higher than the cost of installing the conduit. These factors add to the need for trenchless technology-the ability to dig holes without disturbing the surface. In some ways, trenchless technology is a futuristic concept. Ruth Krauss in a children's book of definitions wrote, "A Hole .. .Is to Dig." But this statement is not necessarily true. Today, a hole could be to bore.

Designed as a fundamental source of information on the installation and renewal of non-man-size supply and sewage lines by the trenchless construction method, this book describes non-steerable and steerable microtunnelling systems, their ranges of application and relevant operational experience. The text is supplemented by numerous photographs, outline drawings, tables and charts. In-depth knowledge is given on the subjects of design and operation of different types of soil removal systems, measuring and steering techniques, construction of starting and target pits, as well as obstruction removal. Moreover, the presentations cover the special jacking pipes required for microtunnelling, and provide detailed information regarding the relevant stress and strain analyses. It is shown how the trenchless construction method can be used for marking service house connections, and that there are new ways to link up house service lines with shafts or sewers. A comprehensive bibliography rounds off the text
