Initially, the replacement or the rehabilitation of defective sanitary sewer laterals or house connections on private property was not an issue that the Princeton (New Jersey) Sewer Operating Committee (PSOC), like most governmental agencies, was prepared or willing to include in their sanitary sewer system rehabilitation projects. However, it was widely acknowledged that the sewer laterals were a significant source of infiltration and inflow into the PSOC's collection system. Since 2002, the replacement or the rehabilitation of the sewer lateral has become a major component of PSOC rehabilitation projects.

The PSOC has developed successful design, public relations and construction procedures and has incorporated the use of trenchless technology (specifically pipe bursting) into the sanitary sewer rehabilitation projects.
