Sewer information tracking program
GBA Sewer Master is an easy-to-use program that can manage sewer collection system inventory, inspection, and analysis data. When used with the company's GIS Master program, it helps track system resources, log conditions, prioritize maintenance, track inflow/infiltration removal, locate bottlenecks, and project the potential impact of community growth.

Large-diameter sewer cleaning system
A combination of products is available for cleaning out sewers from 2 to 20 feet in diameter. The SK-1000 is a powerful jetter, rated at 350 gallons per minute at 2000 psi; the spray breaks up and suspends debris, then forces it down the pipe to the manhole. Then, a pump forces the debris and water up to the Grit Gator de-watering box, where debris falls out, and the particle-free water is decanted back to the sewer line. Users can clean up to 2000 feet a day. Garner Environmental, Pump and Sewer Equipment Div. www.garner-sewer.com.

CP is a high-strength, fiber-reinforced cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) designed for rehabilitating gravity pipes with diameters of 24 to 84 inches. The reinforcing fibers are integrated into the pipe wall to form a sandwiched laminate structure. Its high strength and stiffness deliver a fully structural repair product with half the wall thickness of conventional CIPP. The product reduces infiltration and increases flow capacity.
