The Plainfield Area Regional Sewerage Authority, like many of its counterparts, was faced with the daunting task of replacing or repairing old, failing infrastructure. One of PARS A's larger lines the 12,500 feet long, 42” diameter, Joint Meeting Interceptor was one of those lines and had been in service since 1916. After 85 years of service this cast in place concrete line began to fail from years of hydrogen sulfide damage. A conventional open cut replacement of the line would have resulted in a major disruption of the lives of many in this quiet suburb and would have damaged acres of wetlands. PARS A decided to look at trenchless technology for a solution to the problem.

Several trenchless methods were examined for reconditioning this interceptor. Ultimately segmented sliplining was selected as the best method of replacement. This paper will address the details of the selection of this process, our experience with the installation of the liner, the benefits of this type of repair, and some of the lessons learned about segmented sliplining.
