Mainline Camera Work
-2019 Camera work will begin shortly
We will remove the sewer cleaning signs from the area as soon as the cleaning has been completed in that area. If the sign is still posted all of the cleaning has not been completed.
The notifications above are for our customer’s convenience and although we try to keep these up to date the best we can there may be work in other areas of our service area throughout the year
Why is this work important?
As waste-water networks age, the risk of deterioration, blockages, and collapses becomes a major concern. As a result, municipalities worldwide are taking proactive measures to improve performance levels of their sewer systems. Cleaning and inspecting sewer lines are essential to maintaining a properly functioning system; these activities further a community’s reinvestment into its wastewater infrastructure.
Mainline Camera Work
As mentioned in the sewer cleaning work description, aging waste-water systems need to be monitored to ensure the highest levels of productivity. To ensure the integrity of our system, we use in-line cameras to video over 430,000 feet of pipe every year.
Lateral Video Inspection
For the same reasons we video our mainline pipes, we inspect the lateral pipe running from residential and commercial properties to guarantee functionality and integrity.
