Sewer Improvements a Focus at TUD
The District has started a multi-year capital improvement program for its sewer collection system. The Board of Directors in October approved the contract for the District to partner with Mountain Pipeline of Truckee, California, to work on the project. The District has a total of approximately 647,000 linear feet of sewer pipe that will be inspected over the next five years. The first phase of the program involves cleaning and inspecting over 60 miles of sewer main. As part of this program, Mountain Pipeline will be using a closed circuit television camera system to inspect the sewer lines. They are responsible for inspecting about 55% of the District’s sewer collection system by the end of 2015.
