Formed in 1968, the Metropolitan Sewer District of Greater Cincinnati (MSD) maintains over 3,000 miles of sewer pipe. MSD’s collection system, which serves about 230,000 households and businesses, includes both older combined sewers and separate sanitary sewers, making maintenance and compliance an ongoing challenge.
Brighten Up Your Sewers with Quickview airHD
When you need to inspect your collection system rapidly, Quickview airHD is there for you. Quickview’s patented Quad-Haloptic technology enables it to illuminate up to 400’ of pipe, giving you a better look at your collection system. But what is it that makes these Haloptic lights so powerful?
When the City of Wichita’s Stormwater Utility Division was tasked with assessing its entire stormwater collection system in 2018, estimates placed the project completion time at greater than 40 years. Their lone CCTV van set to work, but it was slow going.
Integral Lift Simplifies ROVVER X Adjustments
When you’re confronted with the unexpected underground, things can quickly take a turn for the worst. Our new ROVVER X crawler with integral lift easily factors in the unknowns of sewer assessment, supporting a more fluid and efficient inspection process.
Driving an inspection crawler through sewers is challenging work in of itself. But when the equipment isn't built well, the task becomes even harder. No sewer pro wants to waste time fiddling with bolts and losing screws to swap out wheels and adjust inspection crawler height. Throw in a pair of heavy work gloves and uncooperative weather, and a regular day in the field can become a real hassle.
Arold Construction has been building and rehabilitating infrastructure for nearly 50 years. With 65 employees across trenchless, civil, and water and wastewater services, its team tackles everything from cured in place pipe (CIPP) lining to bridge construction.
What Is Photogrammetry?
Photogrammetry is a 3D coordinate measuring technique that uses photographs to determine distance. It was developed in the mid-1800s, just years after the invention of photography itself in 1826. At its core, photogrammetry is the science of making measurements from photographs. This method has many possible applications, including measuring coordinates, creating topographic maps and digital models, and quantifying distances, heights and volumes. It is commonly used to measure sites that are difficult or dangerous to access. In the sewer inspection industry, photogrammetry offers a host of insights into sewer condition and rehabilitation options.
Success in the wastewater industry is a ground game. That's why Envirosight has built an expert network of sales and services specialists across North America. No matter where you are, there’s always someone nearby.
There’s no such thing as a typical sewer inspection anymore. Sometimes, you need flexible data that can quickly transfer from remote worksites. Sometimes, you need hi-res images to pinpoint exact defects in a pipe. And sometimes, you need something in between. When demands vary from pipe to pipe, you need powerful technology that can keep your team on track.
Stormwater runoff, which consists of rainwater and snowmelt, can cause issues in developed areas where impervious surfaces like roofs and pavement prevent precipitation from soaking into the ground. When water can’t be absorbed into the ground, it can accumulate and cause property damage and flooding, as well as spread disease.
