Camera inspection of house lateral for determination of problems (there must be accessible clean-outs).
Connection System Inspection
The collection system is inspected with a closed-circuit TV camera to look for leaks, breaks, misalignments, tree roots, infiltration of ground water, and blockages which can rob the pipe of it’s ability to carry flow efficiently.
Inspection and test approval of new connections during construction. After successful inspection, the code card can be signed indicating our approval of the construction.
In addition to all of the services that we provide to residential customers, we also offer the opportunity for potential Commercial, Industrial and Public Facilities customers to meet with us and discuss the project concept. Many times we are able to save time on preliminary design by offering suggestions and providing our insight as well as providing requirements that must be met. This effort is made so that these projects can be completed in a timely and efficient manor, and also gives us a chance to become more familiar with the customer, providing an environment of trust and communication. This is very valuable in the event of any future relationship.
Permits for connection to the mainline sewer are issued after a review of the site plan, architectural, mechanical and plumbing drawings. There is also a review of an Industrial Pretreatment Questionnaire which is required as a part of the Authority’s Industrial Pretreatment Program for all uses other than residential.
