Public enemy #1 for managers of sanitary sewer collection systems is infiltration.

According to the EPA, nearly half the water entering treatment plant operations is clean groundwater - a direct result from lack of maintenance. CCTV has long been the most reliable technology for inspecting non-man entry underground assets, but experts agree, visual proof is not 100% conclusive. Enter: Electro Scan.

Video translation: It is very important to understand that the majority of our grouts are designed specifically to eliminate leaks, but at the same time, it's important to note that we have grouts for soil stabilization and slab lifting as well.

Anyone who has spent time in the military understands and accepts you may have to give your life at some point. No one should be ready or need to give their life rehabilitating a sewer. Sadly and unintentionally, this is what happened here.

"Briceno…had removed his harness to reach a confined space and was carried away by the rushing water, according to police officials at the scene. The other worker was strapped into his harness and was pulled to safety,” the officials said.
