Description:

The overall objective of this EPA-funded study was to demonstrate innovative sewer line assessment technologies that are designed for rapid deployment using portable equipment. This study focused on demonstration of technologies that are suitable for smaller diameter pipes (less than 12-inch diameter). Recently developed and commercially-available acoustic-based sewer pipe assessment technologies demonstrated during this study were the Sewer Line – Rapid Assessment Tool (SL-RAT™) manufactured by InfoSense, Inc. (InfoSense) of North Carolina and the SewerBatt™ manufactured by Acoustic Sensing Technology Ltd (ASTL), based in the United Kingdom.

Purpose/Objective:

To provide an overview of the EPA demonstration project of acoustic sewer inspection technologies.
