Cleaning and inspecting sewer pipes are essential to maintaining the public sewer system and planning improvements.
To clean sewer pipes of debris, crews flush them with water. It may also be necessary to cut tree roots that are intruding into the sewer pipes. Cleaned pipes are then ready for inspection.
To inspect the pipes, crews insert a closed-circuit television video (CCTV) camera into a pipe from a manhole or a sewer cleanout. Video inspection will determine the condition of the pipe and locate where adjacent properties are connected to the public sewer.
