(Victorville)– The City of Victorville today announced that it will inspect 440 miles of sewer pipelines throughout the City. Over the course of the next 10 months, residents can expect to see crews from City contractor, ProPipe cleaning and inspecting sewer lines.
“We want to inform our residents that they can expect to see crews from ProPipe in their neighborhoods inspecting sewer lines,” says City Engineer, Brian Gengler. “Crew members will have the ProPipe logo on their vests and hats, and the ProPipe logo will appear on their vehicles.”
ProPipe has been retained by the City of Victorville to study the condition of the City’s sewer system. The City will use the information collected to plan future capital improvements.
Crews will first clean the sewer pipes then use remote-controlled, robotic devices to obtain still images from inside the sewer pipes. The resulting still images will be consolidated to produce 360 degree, high-definition images that will be used to determine pipe conditions.
Inspection crews have already started their work in the Old Town area. They are expected to proceed in a westerly direction and should conclude their work by December 31, 2017.
Crews will access the sewer pipes through manholes, which could result in very brief, intermittent lane closures; but at least one lane will be open to traffic in the work zone. The City also expects to conduct work in high-congestion areas in the evening hours to reduce any impact on drivers.
