Water and wastewater infrastructure suffer wear and tear due to internal and external factors such as corrosion, pressure surges etc., and consequently need repair and maintenance to continue operating at peak performance. Shutting down critical infrastructure to carry out repairs is not often a feasible option, making a temporary bypass necessary to avoid operational disruption while rehabilitating the pipe network.
Address emergencies safely
Sometimes, environmental events such as heavy rains, floods etc. can also overwhelm the existing infrastructure, necessitating a bypass implementation as a “safety valve” to mitigate negative consequences related to system overload.

To address the ageing infrastructure of a French municipality, Xylem delivers a turnkey sewer bypass to test and bring online a new wastewater treatment plant without operational disruption during the switchover from the old facility to the new facility.
When a sewer mains break was caused by record rains and soil erosion, Xylem delivered an emergency turnkey bypass including pumps, piping, accessories and project management to ensure regulatory compliance and to minimize environmental impact.
4 steps to planning a successful sewage bypass - overpumping
When sewer systems need to undergo maintenance, complex bypass operations are often required to transfer the wastewater to another part of the system.
