Columbia, South Carolina is well underway with its ambitious Clean Water 2020 initiative, which aims to tackle the city’s water quality and wastewater systems by improving the dated infrastructure and capacity issues. The project has been broken down into five phases to ensure Columbia achieves its goal of reducing the amount of sanity sewer overflows as well as protecting the health and safety of Columbia’s citizens while also protecting the environment.

One of the tools Columbia is utilizing as part of its Clean Water 2020 is the Sewer Line Rapid Assessment Tool (SL-RAT®) by InfoSense. The highly portable, easily deployable solution can detect sewer line blockage in as little as three minutes. The tool uses a pair of components called the Transmitter (or TX unit) and the Receiver (or RX unit). The TX is responsible for the active acoustic transmission through the pipe while the RX serves as the microphone and signal processor, listening and interpreting the received acoustic signal to detect if there is a blockage. Additionally, the SL-RAT features built-in GPS which makes it easy to keep track of specific sewer line data.
