The main purpose of this truck is to televise and inspect sanitary sewer mains and services. It gives us visual data for determination of future needs to the wastewater collection system.
This truck is basically a large roto-rooter. This machine is designed to use cutting bits and rods that rotate in the main sewer line. The bits will cut out roots, grease deposits, calcium buildup, along with other harden material that is found in the sewer mains.
This truck is actually a combination of a wash truck and a vacuum unit. This truck does the same thing as a wash truck, but with the vacuum it will extract large debris from the sewer main, so it can be transported to a dumping site at the treatment plant. The Vactor truck also assists in excavations and clean ups as needed.
The Wash Trucks, Vactor Trucks, and Rod Trucks work hard to help prevent sewer overflow and keep the sewer flowing to the Treatment Plant.
