Maintaining the sewer system can sometimes be a challenge for municipalities; especially when dealing with older sewer lines. Lebanon Public Works uses a video camera system that allows them to inspect and maintain more than 120 miles of sewer line. Lebanon Public Works Director Richard Shockley tells us about some of the common issues found in the lines.

With the use of the video camera inspection, the city can quickly make repairs where lines have been damaged, reducing leakage into the ground, and reducing the amount of stormwater getting into the system. This week, Lebanon City Council gave approval for the purchase of new software, which will also provide mobile mapping and data acquisition for the sewer cleaning truck. The software upgrade will cost the city $29-thousand-750-dollars.
