The EPA Praises the SL-RAT

Did you know that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published a detailed report back in 2014 discussing InfoSense’s Sewer Line Rapid Assessment Tool (SL-RAT) tool? If you’re still manually checking your pipes for blockages, the report is a highly informative report discussing how collection systems operators can utilize the power and efficiency of acoustic inspection.

The Demonstration of Innovative Sewer System Inspection Technology: SL-RAT™ report is a long yet fascinating read into how this tool can maximize productivity. If you don’t have the time to read the entire thing, the report highlights the SL-RAT’s “ease of deployment, reduction of cost, increases in reliability of…inspection approaches, combined with the potential for reducing the “cleaning of

clean pipes….” It also concludes that it shows “promise for its application as a tool for cost‐

effective, pre‐cleaning assessment and post‐cleaning quality assurance.”
