Sewer Leak Identification:  Electro Scan Compliments CCTV for Inspection

Public enemy #1 for managers of sanitary sewer collection systems is infiltration. Groundwater and soil fines enter into mainlines, manholes, laterals, and lateral connections through joints and defects. According to the EPA, nearly half the water entering treatment plant operations is clean groundwater - a direct result from lack of maintenance.
