Debris Infiltration in Storm Drain


Water / Utilities


The challenge was to stop infiltration at the pipe joints in a 27-in storm drain.

Engineered Solution

HydraTite 27-in standard wide EPDM rubber seals with two one-piece 304SS retaining bands were proposed as a solution.


Prior to installation, HydraTech removed the debris, earth and soil from the defective area of the storm drain. The restoration of the pipe included ten 27-in standard wide HydraTite seals. The installation spanned two days.


The HydraTite Internal Joint Seal was selected as the long-term solution to eliminate infiltration and prevent ground settling.
