Article: Augusta Utility Incorporating SL-RAT to Address Assessment Program (MSW Cover Story)
Augusta, Georgia has been under a consent order from the Georgia Department of Environmental Protection to do a system wide evaluation. With the mission of mapping and evaluating their entire system, the SL-RAT has been a pivotal instrument for quickly screening small-diameter pipes for blockages. Their one SL-RAT crew is averaging 7,000 ft of pipes assessed per day, which in combination with root and grease control programs has reduced overflows by 25%.
“We’re taking baby steps, but the SL-RAT is one of those things that’s turning the baby steps more into a full stride. I honestly can’t say enough good things about it.”
– Jody Crabtree Asset Manager for Augusta Utilities Department
