Aimed at engineers, this report, which was prepared by a Joint Task Force of the American Society of Civil Engineers and the Water Environment Federation, gives theoretical and practical guidelines for the design and construction of gravity sanitary sewers. It details the administrative and organizational phases of these projects and the parameters for establishing design criteria, completion, and awarding a construction contract. The report then ends with a description of the commonly used trenchless and conventional methods of sanitary sewer construction. The manual is based on the experience of engineers in the field of sanitary sewer structural and hydraulic design, and incorporates charts, illustrations, and example problem solutions.
