Manhole Systems: Purposes and Custom Manhole Forms

Manhole systems play a crucial role in the infrastructure of urban and rural areas, serving as access points, drainage systems, and more. All State Civil Construction in Daytona Beach, Florida, specializes in manhole systems, their purposes, and custom manhole forms designed for and aligned with these specific purposes. 

Manhole System Purposes

Manhole systems serve multiple purposes, each of which can benefit from a custom manhole form. Some of the most common manhole system purposes include:

Access to Underground Utilities

Manholes provide access to underground utilities like water, sewer, and electrical systems. These access points allow crews to perform necessary inspections, general services, or repairs and maintenance. Custom manhole forms can be designed to fit the unique dimensions and specifications required for these utilities, ensuring secure and convenient access without interfering with other infrastructural aspects.


Underground utility and other systems require airflow. Circulation allows the escape of gases and the intake of fresh air. Manholes act as ventilation points for these underground systems, facilitating this airflow. Ventilation is particularly important in sewer systems to prevent the buildup of gases that pose a danger to humans and the environment. We design custom manhole forms with integrated venting capabilities to ensure effective ventilation for sewer system projects and other infrastructure.

Drainage and Flood Control

In areas prone to heavy rainfall or flooding, manhole systems are an important part of stormwater management. A manhole cover acts as an entry point to the drainage system that channels water away from urban areas, reducing the risk of flooding. Customized manhole covers and forms enhance the efficiency of these systems, designed with surrounding systems in mind to maximize water flow and prevent blockages.

Inspection and Monitoring

Manholes provide necessary access points for authorities to inspect and monitor various underground systems. Inspectors can check the condition of pipes and conduits, monitor the flow of wastewater or stormwater, and perform other duties as needed. Custom manhole forms are uniquely tailored to accommodate the inspection tools and equipment authorities use to ensure thorough and efficient monitoring processes.

Cable and Conduit Housing

Telecommunications systems, such as fiberoptic internet, and power services are increasing in demand. This demand calls for many of these services to be housed underground. Manholes house and protect the cables and conduits used for these services. Custom manhole forms and covers provide the necessary space and protection for installation and maintenance, and ensure the integrity and reliability of these essential services.

Custom Manhole Forms for Specific Needs

The many applications manhole systems serve necessitate the use of custom manhole forms, which can be tailored to meet an application’s specific needs. Custom forms ensure that each manhole fits its intended purpose perfectly, and purposes include:

  • Access
  • Ventilation
  • Drainage
  • Inspection
  • Cable housing
