EXTENSIVE WASTEWATER COLLECTION EXPERTISE

Veolia North America operates and maintains 5,000 miles of wastewater collection lines and 1,150 wastewater and storm water pump stations. Our expertise covers all stages of the wastewater collection process, from planning, design and construction to long-term operations, maintenance and management of collection networks.
 
We proudly help communities control sewer rate increases by effectively optimizing municipal infrastructure. To achieve our goals, we focus on customer response, proper maintenance, and ongoing investments using best practices and new technologies. 

SYSTEM EVALUATION

We assess the collection network infrastructure with techniques that include CCTV and smoke testing, infiltration/inflow (I/I) studies, sanitary sewer overflow, and combined sewer overflow studies and hydraulic modeling.

REDUCING CORRECTIVE MAINTENANCE

We apply our preventive and predictive maintenance programs to reduce corrective maintenance tasks, ensuring maximum system uptime and minimal service disruptions. We employ state-of the-art approaches to sewer line rehabilitation (including trenchless technologies such as pipe bursting, cast-in-place pipe, slip lining, and cleaning and lining existing pipes), as well as life-cycle management approaches to related assets.

CUSTOMER RESPONSE SERVICES

We establish 24/7 operations center management and service delivery that links treatment facility and collection systems operations with customers and other contractually guaranteed services to meet your requirements and desired service levels. Learn more about our customer service.
 

FEATURED PROJECT

Richmond, California 
The city turned to Veolia to address excursion at its wastewater treatment facility, odor issues and increasing costs to operate and maintain its expansive collection system. The results include a 98 percent reduction in odor, a reduction in claims against the city, significant increases in compliance and response times, and expected cost savings of approximately $75 million over the term of the public-private partnership.
 

ADDITIONAL PROJECTS

Taunton, Massachusetts 
City officials turned to Veolia when faced with an administrative order to rapidly improve Taunton's 100-year-old sanitary sewer system. Today, the community is back in compliance and the accelerated cleaning program is saving more than $200,000 annually.

North Haven, Connecticut 
Veolia’s operation and maintenance of the town's newly upgraded 4.5-MGD wastewater treatment facility, 9 pump stations and 110-mile collection system have resulted in more than $1 million in cumulative savings.

Cranston, Rhode Island ​ In managing the city's collection system and treatment plant, Veolia has conquered historic odor problems. The citizen's watchdog odor committee ultimately disbanded, but not before they contacted Fall River's municipal leaders to endorse our efforts in doing business there.
