Cocoa’s Maximizes Pipe Inspection with the SL-RAT

Cocoa, Florida is home to about 18,000 residents. Its wastewater collections system is comprised of roughly 200 miles of sewer. To ensure a proactive approach when it comes to maintaining these sewers and collections systems, Cocoa implemented a six-year plan for the purposes of refining and replacing certain pipes based on information obtained via CCTV.

Seeking a robust platform solution for maintenance operations emphasizing efficiency and maximum effectiveness, Cocoa decided to kick off its six year plan by integrating the acoustic inspection tool SL-RAT. Describing it as a “game changer”, the SL-RAT can detect blockage in a mere three minutes. With this tool, Cocoa is better able to make informed decisions about where to deploy its cleaning resources and where it may be better to utilize pricier CCTV. The SL-RAT has also integrated seamlessly with Cocoa’s GIS system, allowing the city to focus more on identifying areas where problems exists that may require deeper analysis.

By taking a proactive approach to their systems assessment, Cocoa is in a better position to allocate time and resources to pipes that require prompt attention. The SL-RAT is used every week and Cocoa’s field operations manager says the tool has “already paid for itself.”
