Delaware’s New Castle County recently showed off some of the improvements made to its sewer system using technology aimed at detecting issues such as grease and oil drain buildup. By routinely checking for sewer blockages, New Castle has been able to largely prevent common problems faced by Utilities such as blockages and overflows.
Using a combination of cleaning trucks and closed-circuit television, officials are able to clean the pips as well as view the results to ensure the pipe has been thoroughly cleaned. Using modern technology like the Sewer Line Rapid Assessment Tool (SL-RAT) which detects sewer line blockage in under three minutes, the sewer systems are able to last longer and costs remain low instead of having to spend extra money taking care of preventable overflows. Back in 2005, New Castle County dealt with more than seventy overflows. Last year, these overflows were reduced to just 26 thanks to the detection powers of sewer line technology like the SL-RAT.
