Preventative Sewer Maintenance
Department Methods
The City of Plainview Wastewater Collection Department uses the following methods to clean and maintain sanitary sewer main lines: 
  • Based on historical data that is collected, the city will prioritize replacement and/or rehabilitation of sewer mains.
  • Sewer main lines are cleaned routinely or as trouble calls are reported. 
  • The city can conduct sewer smoke or dye tests to identify main line cracks that can cause sewer leaks or problems in private lines that may cause odors in homes. 
  • The city can run a small video camera down the sewer main to identify cracks and deterioration. 
  • Trouble areas, neighborhoods served by typically older sewer mains blocked by grease, are kept on a routine weekly cleaning schedule.
