When rehabilitating sewers, the flow cannot simply be diverted. It must be bypassed — temporarily pumped around the pipe being repaired or replaced. This requires pumps capable of moving trash-laden wastewater. The pumps are deployed upstream from the faulty pipe, and a temporary pipeline is installed from the pumps to a downstream section of the sewer. Temporary plugs set in place between these points allow the pipe to be removed or repaired. Depending on the number of homes or businesses the line serves, the bypass may range from a few gallons to several thousands of gallons per minute.
