Sewer System and Evaluation Survey

Main line televising

Parker conducts televised inspections of the sewer lines by using a small motorized vehicle with a high powered camera to see what condition pipes are in. Our crews are trained to conduct a Pipeline Assessment Certification Program inspection. This inspection information is turned over to our engineer who uses it to determine which lines need to be rehabilitated and how.

Smoke Testing

Smoke Testing

Our crews use smoke testing to show which buildings are connected to the sewer system and where there are defects in the system. The test involves blowing smoke through the pipes and seeing where it comes out above ground.

 

 

 

 

 

Manhole inspections

We inspect our manholes to determine which need to be replaced or repaired.

 

 

 

 

Flow Monitoring

Flow monitoring

Flow monitors are machines that read the amount of sewage going through a sewer line. They help us monitor when there are rises and falls in flow, and determine what might be causing those changes. They also give us clues on how we may fix some of those changes.

 

 

 

 

Rain Gauge Monitor

Rain gauge monitoring

We use rain gauges to know how much rain has fallen in a given rainstorm. This information is incorporated with the information we gather from our flow monitors.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Groundwater Monitoring

Groundwater monitoring

Groundwater gauges measure the amount of water in the ground, which is not immediately affected by recent rainstorms. This information is also incorporated with our flow monitor data.
