The article discusses the solutions for the sanitary sewer laterals problem faced by municipalities in North America. It states that the main reason of the problem is the perception of several municipalities that the maintenance of sewer laterals is sole responsibility of property owners. It explores three basic methods for the replacement and rehabilitation of these equipment including open-cut construction, cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) lining and pipe bursting approach.
