Global resin supplier AOC LLC collaborated with Clean Water Works Inc. (CWW), an Ottawa-based leader in pipeline rehabilitation, to restore the sewage pipes serving an automobile factory in Windsor, Ontario.
• A sewer worker enters a manhole for one more look late in the day, just to check one final thing. He does this without an entry permit, a harness and tri-pod or a safety person on the surface. His co-workers, not knowing what he is doing, miss him. They look in the manhole and he is not there. He is found an hour or so later, dead at the sewage treatment plant.

There was a time, back in the 90s, when the horizontal directional drilling market was a huge segment of the annual Underground Construction Technology International Conference & Exhibition. Since then, UCT has grown to truly encompass all aspects of the underground marketplace with construction and rehabilitation of sewer and water systems topping the list.
Design of 4,000 linear feet (LF) of 12-inch water main and 5,124 LF of large diameter sanitary sewer interceptors are being undertaken by RJN Group Inc. (RJN) for the city of Fort Worth, TX. The interceptors are in four locations in a predominately commercial and industrial area adjacent to a historic neighborhood.
With the advent of new construction technologies comes the need for proven field tests to advance their use. Horizontal directional drilling (HDD) using ductile iron pipe, first introduced in 1994, is a method of installing the pipe underground without digging a trench.
