OP5 Protection of the Building or Facility from Water and Sewage Damage



Intent 1:

To limit the probability that an inappropriate coupling design will lead to:

  • entry of roots or infiltration of surrounding material, which could lead to obstruction of flow, which could lead to storm water surcharge, or
  • misalignment or separation of joints, which could lead to pipe system leakage, which could lead to soil erosion or flooding.

This is to limit the probability of water damage to the building or facility.
