Lifespan defers costly sewer upgrades in Moncton, New Brunswick

During storm events, your municipality’s underground infrastructure can take a beating. If it is already stressed due to outstripped development or it is nearing its end of lifecycle, storm events can serve to exacerbate the problem.

The City of Moncton is frequented by storm events and its infrastructure has been playing catch-up to the growth the city has experienced over the last few years.


After an underground infrastructure audit, the City of Moncton learned that extraneous flows were having a limiting effect on the capacity of their sewers. They pin-pointed the issue and found that the culprit was off-road and rural manholes. These manholes are often located below grade and the inflow and infiltration (I/I) was especially a problem during storm events or spring melts.


Moncton was able to avoid and defer construction and expansion of existing sewers by targeting exiting manholes and replacing them with the Hamilton Kent Lifespan System.


The Lifespan System has given the city of Moncton a turnkey watertight seal with no I/I. It has also allowed the city to save, not only the cost of construction of additional sewers, but also costs associated with inflow.
