Force Main Rehabilitation

COURSE NO: C08-009
Force Main Rehabilitation
Course Highlights

This online engineerng PDH course presents the characteristics of force main systems, as well as force main system selection, design, operation and maintenance.


Force mains that carry sewage flows under pressure represent a special set of challenges for sewer rehabilitation. A rupture of a sewer force main could release millions of gallons of raw sewage into the environment posing significant health risks to the general public and significant impacts to the environment.  As some of the newer rehabilitation technologies develop a positive track record of use in sewer force mains and confidence in their design approach and installation process strengthens, more utilities are willing to consider these technologies as potential renewal solutions.


This 8 PDH online course is applicable to engineers involved with the design, construction, operation, maintenance, and/or rehabilitation of sewer force mains.
