Last month, Rehoboth Beach in Delaware recently began conducting field inspections of its sewer manholes. These inspections are being performed with closed-circuit television and make use of acoustic technology. The tool being used for the inspection is a sewer line rapid assessment tool which, if you’ve read previous blogs, may sound familiar.
Indeed, Rehoboth Beach is using the SL-RAT to inspect more than 75,000 linear feet of pipe. Using the acoustic tech, Rehoboth Public Works can determine the severity of a clogged pipe and better prioritize where its resources should go. With the use of closed-circuit television, the pipe’s condition can be visualized, improving decision making.
The SL-RAT makes use of a sender and receiver unit to evaluate pipes and setup requires a mere five minutes. It uses an easy to understand score system to convey the degree of blockage a pipe may have to keep operations simple. With the SL-RAT’s built-in GPS features, it is easy to gather data regarding specific sections of pipe.
