Norton Engineering Inc.
Norton Engineering Inc. was established in 2015 by Barbara A. Robinson, M.A.Sc., P.Eng.
Barbara has 30 years' experience in civil engineering studies, EAs, design, construction, implementation & monitoring, in both the private and public sectors (with two years as City Engineer for Kitchener). She has spent countless hours in the field, in sewer systems and in basements, to understand the complexities of public and private side sewers.
Barbara's primary research focus is the investigation of the phenomena of new sewers being poorly installed and permitting unacceptable leakage (e.g. entrance of groundwater and rainwater which should not be there) at inception on both the PUBLIC and the PRIVATE sides of the sewer system (See link below).
Ontario's Leaky Sewer Problem
The Agenda with Steve Paikin
One of the most common types of household flooding isn't caused by rain, but by brand new leaky sewer pipes. Barbara joins Steve Paikin to discuss why these leaks are happening at an alarming rate, and the damage this is causing to cities and the province.

HOT OFF THE PRESS:
"Norton" got its name from Ed Norton of the Honeymooners... He was a sewer maintenance worker. Enough said.
