Proper maintenance of underground water collection systems is critical for the preservation of public health and saftey, as well as for protection of capital investments in these facilities.
Routine maintenance and cleaning is an integral part of maintaining these systems, as it prevents the accumulation of debris and other obstructive materials from reducing flow in lines. Build ups can cause surcharges, overflows, and other such problems.
Some typical problems that can often be remedied with cleaning and/or cutting are:
- Roots infiltrating into sewer
- Obstructive meterial blockages
- Intruding lateral connections
- Grease build-ups
- Accumulation of solid debris
- Reduction in flow capacity due to above obstructions
