Laterals Good Practices Guidelines
This Laterals Good Practices Guidelines publication is present by the North American Society for Trenchless Technology (NASTT), and the focus is trenchless rehabilitation techniques for existing sewer laterals from the connection at the receiving sewer to the internal plumbing of a structure. Wastewater collection systems are essential utilities, and it is critical that communities preserve and maintain them in a reliable, serviceable, and structurally sound condition. In recognition of the economic and environmental importance of wastewater systems, NASTT developed the Laterals Good Practice training course. This companion publication for the course has been developed to be generic, non-commercial information covering a wide range of lateral rehabilitation methods. The content was peer reviewed by volunteer industry professionals to ensure it offered accurate and nonbiased information. Since 1990, the all-volunteer members of NASTT have presented non-commercial information about green alternative engineering methods to the North American communities. NASTT offers multiple, high quality courses each year throughout North America covering various trenchless topics. Authored by: Raymond l. Sterling, Ph.D., P.E., F. ASCE; Jason S.
