Sanitary Sewers

 

A sanitary sewer is a type of underground carriage system, for transporting sewage from houses or industry to sewage  treatment facilities. 

 

Ideally sanitary sewer systems are operated separately from storm water systems but when sewers carry both sewage and storm water together they are called combine sewers.

 

Sewers are usually pipelines that begin with connecting pipes from buildings to one or more levels of larger underground trunk mains, which transport the sewage to sewage treatments facilities.  Vertical pipes, called manholes, connect the mains to the surface.  The manholes are used for access to the sewer pipes for inspection and maintenance.  They also facilitate vertical and horizontal angles in otherwise straight pipelines.  Sewers are generally gravity powered, though pumps may be used if necessary.
