Observation and Analysis of Popular Root Control Methods in Pilot Scale Sanitary Sewer
Root intrusion in sanitary sewers is a significant contributor to the alarming rate of sanitary sewer overflows occurring in the US. A better understanding of popular root control methods is required for the development of an optimal root removal protocol. This research focuses on experiment design and data collection for the comparison of popular root control methods in a pilot scale sewer environment. Two chemical treatments are observed, RootX and Razorooter. Both herbicides stopped root growth for some time; however, some samples treated by RootX began to regrow roots within a year.
