Demonstration of Innovative Sewer System Inspection Technology SewerBatt™
The overall objective of this EPA-funded study was to demonstrate innovative a sewer line assessment technology that is designed for rapid deployment using portable equipment. This study focused on demonstration of a technology that is suitable for smaller diameter pipes (less than 300mm). The recently developed and commercially-available acoustic-based sewer pipe assessment technology demonstrated during this study was the SewerBatt™.
