Example Maintenance cost on a roadway. Maintenance costs for constructed roadways tend to increase with both age and use of the facility.

As an example, the following empirical model was estimated for maintenance expenditures on sections of the Ohio Turnpike: C = + V + A. Consistent and thorough maintenance of the collection system will enable the system to serve its stated life.

Preventive maintenance is talked about, but seldom practiced by some agencies. Decades of neglect, or grossly inadequate maintenance of some systems, are two reasons why wastewater collection systems now require billions of dollars worth of rehabilitation and upgrading over the next The predictive maintenance program is a subset of the preventive maintenance program and is essentially scheduled inspection tasks designed to determine the effectiveness of the preventive maintenance program as well as the overall condition of the sanitary collection system.

Sewage lift stations contain pumps, valves and electrical equipment that function in pumping sewage waste water from lower areas to elevated pipe collection systems for further processing. Sewage lift stations require routine preventive maintenance for hassle-free year-round functioning.

The low cost of gravity wastewater conveyance and the higher costs of building, operating, and maintaining lift stations means that wastewater pumping should be avoided, if possible and technically feasible.

Wastewater pumping can be eliminated or reduced by selecting alternative sewer routes or extending a gravity sewer using direction. Cost: On-lot facilities, including pumps and tanks, will account for more than 75 percent of total costs, and may run as high as 90 percent.

Thus, there is a strong motivation to use a system with the least expensive on-lot facilities. STEP systems may lower on-lot costs because they allow some gravity service connectionsFile Size: KB.
