<p>&ldquo;Sustainability through reliability&rdquo; &mdash; presented at the 2015 MainTrain Conference &mdash; focused on the rapid growth of passenger flow at Toronto Pearson Airport and how, due to this growth, we were experiencing a high number of plumbing drainage failures. We carried out an RCA on our system and came up with changes in how we would prevent drainage failures. The changes we made dealt with our plumbing design standards; food and beverage tenant fats; oil and organics recovery system; lease agreements; and maintenance practices. However, that was only the starting point. In this presentation, we&rsquo;ll discuss RCA conducted, the failures experienced, and the enhancements and improvements we made to make our system more reliable.</p>
