Maintenance Team

Maintenance Activities
Preventative Maintenance – This is maintenance that the collections system crew does on a monthly basis in areas known as “hot spots.” In order to minimize and prevent sewer backups, this division is responsible for a preventative maintenance program that includes periodic television inspection and cleaning of the sanitary sewer system.

Basin Maintenance – Basin Maintenance is maintenance that is performed in one specific area of the District. Each public sewer line in this area is first cleaned and then televised to see the structural condition of the public sewer pipe.

Corrective Maintenance – This maintenance is performed to repair defects found throughout the sewer system that has the potential to cause a stoppage or failure. The District hires a contractor to repair or rehabilitate these sewer pipes.

Service Calls – The District field personnel respond to service calls related to the sanitary sewer system. This includes but is not limited to the investigation of sewer back-ups, manhole investigation, etc.

Sanitary Sewer Overflow Emergency Response – The District responds to all CVSan sewer overflows that occur in the public sewer system. The District is dedicated to protecting public health and the environment.

Equipment
High-Velocity Cleaner – This self-contained vehicle is a heavy-duty high-velocity cleaner that uses high-pressure water to clean and maintain sewer facilities and occasionally assist with breaking stoppages. The District’s unit holds up to 600 gallons of water and is capable of cleaning sewer lines up to 8” in diameter.

Combination Unit – This self-contained vehicle is a heavy-duty combination vacuum/high-velocity cleaner that uses high-pressure water to clean and maintain sewer facilities and occasionally assist with breaking stoppages. This unit differs from a high-velocity cleaner because it has the ability to vacuum debris from manhole channels. The Districts combination unit holds 400 gallons of water and has a 3 cubic yard debris tank that can hold an additional 1,000 gallons of water when not being used for debris collection. This unit is capable of cleaning sewer lines up to 60" in diameter.

Machine Rodder – This self-contained vehicle is a heavy-duty unit that is used to maintain sewer lines that are known to have “roots” and occasionally assist with breaking stoppages within the sewer facilities by mechanically inserting a metal rod with a cleaning tool attached at the end, into the sewer lines to clear obstructions. Our unit is capable of cleaning sewer lines up to 15” in diameter and has 1000’ of the rod.

Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) Inspection Unit – This unit allows the collection system crew to visually inspect underground facilities through the use of an underground camera that transmits video through a fiber optic cable to the above-ground vehicle. Our unit is capable of inspecting sanitary sewer lines up to 24” in diameter and a maximum length of 1000’ at one time.
