The video inspection is to assess sanitary infrastructure and is part of The City’s proactive underground infrastructure maintenance program.  Cleaning through power-flushing is to remove any deposits of sediment, silt and debris in the both the storm and sanitary sewer systems that may have been deposited due to the flood event. Flushing the system ensures efficient operation and reduces any potential future impacts to residents or businesses.

These video inspections and power flushing treatments are performed on a planned maintenance schedule. Please note that this work schedule may change due to unplanned issues or emergency priority-work. The City is committed to completing this work in as timely manner as possible.
