Our goal is to transport wastewater efficiently from our customers to the San José-Santa Clara Regional Wastewater Facility. To achieve this goal, proactive maintenance is required to prevent sanitary sewer overflows. You may see the District vehicles on your street from time to time. Our workers are actively performing the necessary maintenance required to achieve this goal and keep our communities safe.
Televising the pipes to assess their condition
We are very fortunate to have the proper technology to assess the condition and integrity of our sanitary sewers by use of specially designed closed circuit television (CCTV) equipment. This equipment allows our team to visually inspect difficult to access areas under our city streets and within easements, to proactively assess our sanitary sewers and catch potential problems before they have a chance to occur.
Repairs are sometimes necessary
With our proactive maintenance and monitoring program, we will come across sanitary sewers that may have been damaged by surrounding utilities or natural occurring incidents that shorten the lifetime of the sanitary sewer. This will typically lead to a repair to restore the sanitary sewers structural integrity.
