let and outlet sewer mains are the same size. Where the sewer size increases at the outlet and the gradient permits, the tops of both inlet and outlet sewer mains should be at the same elevation. However, if this arrangement is not practical because of gradient limitations, the inverts of the inlet and outlet sewer mains can be at the same elevation, preferably with the outlet slightly lower. Straight runs of sewer mains should not change in pipe diameter (size) except at a catch basin or manhole.
