When she became co-owner of Orlando-based wastewater contractor LRIE, Inc., Karoline Headrick and her business partner decided it was time to transition away from recording inspections by hand.
In this day and age, sewer inspection systems can provide us with so much more than video footage. Advanced technologies like laser profiling allow sewer professionals to get deeper insights on pipe qualities like ovality, alignment, capacity and more. The laser profiler attachment for the ROVVER X sewer inspection system makes it easy to capture geometric profiles for these purposes.
Digital workflows deliver many benefits to sewer inspection teams. Now, municipalities and contractors who are looking to streamline their workflows for peak efficiency can learn about the fundamentals in our new whitepaper, Digital Workflows for Wastewater Inspection and Maintenance.
Many wastewater pros focus exclusively on gathering inspection footage, but that task is only a small part of the wastewater assessment workflow. And throughout the inspection process, there are a lot of handoffs: from supervisors who are assigning work to inspection crews; from crews who take videos and record observations to the teams assessing and prioritizing future work; from contractors to municipalities when work is completed; and more. Not surprisingly, crews that can transfer inspection and rehab information smoothly tend to work more quickly and efficiently.
Every day, wastewater pros around the world leverage equipment and software to keep communities clean and healthy. Key to this task is collecting and analyzing data to plan maintenance, improve performance and achieve compliance. Video from crawlers and other visual assessment methods, in addition to laser profiling and sonar data, can provide a complete picture of underground infrastructure.

Many wastewater system managers focus on pipelines. But manholes can be an even greater source of problems, in some extreme cases contributing up to 90% of inflow and infiltration in a system. And as they’re easier to access, manholes are generally less expensive to fix. To repair them though, they must be inspected.
