Management and maintenance of sewer tunnels

Start time: 7:00pm AEDT. Shared experience of the challenges posed by routine maintenance on drainage networks.
Management and maintenance of sewer tunnels

Whilst the glamourous Rail and Road tunnels are visible and exciting to the public, with ample space to perform maintenance activities, the forgotten world of Utility tunnels have been just as crucial in keeping our societies operating since the first millennium.

Utility tunnels are smaller than their larger transport cousins, and the added issue of noxious gas environments makes maintaining these tunnels inherently more complex. Various companies undertake routine maintenance activities on drainage networks, including sewer tunnels.

Lee will share the challenges faced with managing and maintaining these tunnels after construction is completed.
