Manhole Rehabilitation

Manhole Rehab

Does your sewer infrastructure need rehabilitation? At Plummer’s Environmental Services, we offer multiple solutions to restore your infrastructure. Our quality tested and certified materials eliminate costly excavation and replacement.

Our team can restore a manhole so that it looks and functions like new, giving you peace of mind. Our available manhole and structure linings include cementitious coating, epoxy coating, and cured-in-place manhole (CIPM) lining.

If you are unsure if a manhole needs rehabilitation, feel free to take advantage of our MACP manhole inspection service. At Plummer’s Environmental Services, we are always looking for ways to help prolong the lives of waste management systems.

Typical structures to be rehabilitated include:

  • Sanitary sewer manholes
  • Storm water catch basins
  • Sanitary sewer lift stations
  • Concrete tanks
  • Steel tanks
  • Metering chambers
  • Secondary containment areas
  • Waste water sludge tanks
  • Waste water clarifiers

Ground Water Infiltration Grouting

Do you have groundwater infiltrating your collections system through manholes or other access structures? Did you know that one gallon per minute of groundwater infiltration over the course of a year can cost a collection system over $1,000? Our team of trained experts will seal your leaking structures by injecting expanding grout to the outside of the structure, cutting off the leak at the source.

Cementitious Coating

Grand Rapids Manhole Rehabilitation

Cementitious Coating is designed to fix structural problems in brick or concrete manholes. By applying Standard Cement fiber-reinforced mortar to the inside of the manhole, we can create a new manhole right inside of the existing structure!

Cementitious Coating is the most cost-effective method for structurally rehabilitating manholes and lift stations. In addition to the structural enhancements, they also provide an excellent barrier for infiltration and exfiltration. However, when high levels of hydrogen sulfide are present, it is recommended to line over the surface of the cementitious coating with a corrosion resistant Cured in Place lining or Epoxy Coating.

Raven Epoxy Coating

Manhole Rehabilitation Grand Rapids, MI

Plummer’s Environmental Services is a certified applicator for Raven Lining Systems, from Raven Epoxy Coatings. We use these coatings to rehabilitate manhole and other sewer structures that experience corrosion due to hydrogen sulfide gas.

In addition to the waste water industry, our team of certified applicators can rehabilitate a variety of other concrete, steel, masonry, and fiberglass structures that are experiencing corrosion due to chemical exposure. Raven Epoxy Coatings are a solvent-free, 100% solid ultra-high build spray-on coating designed to protect the substrate to which it is applied. Utilizing Raven Epoxy Coatings ensures various structures can be completely rehabilitated with little to no downtime required.

CIPM Lining

CIPM Lining Grand Rapids, MI

Let us design a cured rehabilitation solution for your deteriorated manhole and lift station structures with a CIPM lining system from Alternative Lining Technologies. This revolutionary solution for manhole rehabilitation is based on the concept of CIPP lining.

The AltLiner TM is comprised of PVC coated fleece material with fused seams and multiple layers of fiberglass. These materials are saturated and bonded together with a 100% solids epoxy to create a monolithic barrier impervious to hydrogen sulfide corrosion, infiltration, and ex-filtration. Like CIPP liners, CIPM liners can resist physical damage caused by sewer maintenance equipment far greater than other coatings can, due to the structural makeup of the composite. Why not consider the benefits of incorporating cured-in-place technology into your manhole rehabilitation projects?
