Sanitary Pipeline Pilot Project
After 42-Years of Service in Lima OhioJeff Boschert, Brian Browne, Kent Carlson, Steven Kayatin
The Vernon Heights Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) gravity sanitary sewer was constructed in 1976 for Allen County, Lima, Ohio. This installation was a trial of PVC (SDR 35) as a new material in the system. Fourteen sanitary sewer lines of eight-inch pipe were installed using the material. As a trial, these flexible pipes have been inspected and documented four times over their forty two years of service.
