Underground Utility Standards

    ASTM underground utilities standards include standard practices for installing and operating optical fiber systems and repair of sewer systems. Underground utilities standards address safety and access rights, selection of the utility, and the continued maintenance of the utility once fiber has been installed. The standards also cover the maintenance and rehabilitation of these systems using robotics technology and chemical grouts, inclusive of guides for application. Methods include those for the development of damage algorithms for water conveyance systems to quantify the potential for component damage as a function of various levels of seismic hazards. These underground utilities standards are of value to telecommunication companies, underground utility owners, regulators (municipal engineers), fiber optic cable manufacturers, the civil engineering community, chemical grout producers, robotics manufacturers, pipe manufacturers, designers of civil software applications, utilities contractors, and fiber optic deployment technology companies.
