On an international scale, sewer and other utilities are in need of inspection, repair and replacement. Most are located in congested urban areas, under buildings, roadways or expensive landscape, and are surrounded by other utilities. With estimated utility replacement costs in the billions over the next 20 years, repair work is often selected over replacement due to tight municipal budgets. Without proper inspections, pipe degradation and intrusions may go undetected until system backups demand attention.
- Manhole and Sewer Line Inspections – Regularly scheduled inspections help determine which pipes are in need of the most urgent repair and provide detailed reports for future planning.
- Sewer Line Repairs – With limited budgets and resources, it is important to identify and repair sewer lines that are causing system backups and leaking contaminants into the soil.
- Sewer Line Replacements – After decades of use, especially in high growth areas, inspections may determine that repairs are insufficient and total replacement is necessary.
