CCTV (video inspection) of the Sewer Collection System

District employees inspect the entire collection system within six years.  RUSA uses the Envirosight® Rovver CCTV equipment and the WINCAN program to document:

·         the structural condition of the pipe

·         root intrusion

·         grease

·         protruding taps

·         evidence of inflow and infiltration (I/I) or surcharging

·         manhole pave-overs, and

·         other deficiencies that factor into condition assessment

Planned video inspections are generally scheduled to follow the planned cleaning schedule. However, in the event of a blockage, a video inspection assesses the cause of the blockage. After the blockage is removed the line is evaluated with a CCTV crawler to assess the condition of the pipe.  RUSA uses the Envirosight® Rovver CCTV equipment for this assessment.

All newly constructed sewer lines are required to be CCTV inspected by the RUSA Collections Department to verify as-built drawings and ensure the line has no construction defects.
