The maintenance of the sewer collection system can be broken down into four functions or disciplines: cleaning , sewer investigations , construction and training. There are 35 dedicated, hard-working people involved in these disciplines to assure proper system maintenance. DES routinely cleans sewers, manholes, and catch basins. Cleaning a sewer has become more manageable with modern equipment. To clean or unblock a sewer, the vactor utilizes high-pressure water, specialized cleaning nozzles, and a vacuum capable of sucking up bricks and 5" diameter rocks. All of our vactors are under five years old and in service almost everyday. That is where sewer investigations come into play. We televise main sewers and house laterals from property line clean-outs to the main sewer. Pipes are checked for cleanliness, integrity is the pipe still round or is it starting to crack or break and capacity flow marks on the sides or top of the pipe.

The aggressive preventive maintenance program ensures that sewer mains remain in proper working order and prevents many problems before they occur. In addition, cleaning crews respond to stoppage complaints. The Sewer Utility operates three sewer cleaning crews. Each crew is assigned to clean the sewers in a different cleaning area. Each crew cleans the sewers in one sub-area before moving on to the next sub-area. When the sewers in the last sub-area have been cleaned, the process starts over in the first sub-area.
