Sinkholes pose major safety risks, and they do hundreds of millions of dollars worth of damage every year.
Cover-collapse sinkholes, specifically, are a threat to wastewater utilities with damaged pipes. Sinkholes can also have a ripple effect on watersheds and wastewater and stormwater systems around them. The first step to preventing a sinkhole caused by leaking pipes is developing a strong sewer inspection program focused on inflow and infiltration management.
Routine maintenance and sewer inspection can save your utility money while keeping your community safe from catastrophic collapse.
