Specification of Sewers and Drains

  • Ivor H. Seeley


This chapter is primarily concerned with the drafting of specification clauses covering the provision, laying and jointing of sewers and drains in a variety of materials. The specification will also pick up associated operations such as excavation, timbering, backfill, etc., of sewer trenches, concrete protection to pipes and testing pipes. Where large-diameter sewers are to be laid in tunnel, the provision, jointing and grouting of shaft and tunnel segments will probably arise.
