Sewer Systems Book from C.H.I.P.S.

Alternative Sewer Systems
Second Edition
by Water Environment Federation

Alternative Sewer Systems is a complete primer on the various systems that can be used to replace expensive gravity systems presently used in small and large communities.

Alternative Sewer Systems provides a general overview of collection systems and then elaborates on the design, performance, and management of three specific types: pressure, vacuum, and effluent.

Alternative Sewer Systems offers a frank, detailed look at the advantages and disadvantages of alternative systems.

Alternative Sewer Systems provides:

  • Pros and cons of using alternative collection
  • Discharge interface requirements
  • Grinder-pump needs
  • Piping requirements
  • SI as primary units and U.S. as secondary
