In case you missed out, here's a round-up of the most-read Envirosight content from the past year. Check out their white papers, worksheets and webinars to improve your workflow, save money, keep your crew safe and get more done.

Zoom into Cleaning
Attempting to clean sewers without seeing their condition firsthand can be wasteful and time-consuming. Pre- and postcleaning video assessment helps ensure you clean only when necessary, and that your cleaning efforts are successful. This white paper discusses the benefits of using zoom assessment technology to understand pipe condition pre- and postjetting. These benefits include conserving CCTV crawler resources, time and cost savings, improved safety, ease of documentation and convenience.

Sewer Maintenance 101
Know someone new to the sewer industry? Help them get up to speed quickly. Envirosight’s free Sewer Maintenance 101: A Quick and Dirty Guide to Sewer Inspection and Upkeep provides a comprehensive overview of collection system components, safety considerations, best practices, terminology and technologies for inspection, cleaning and repair. It's ideal as a training manual, either for self-guided study or as part of supervised coursework.

Side-Scan Sewer Inspection Comes of Age
CCTV inspection footage can take a long time to collect and even longer to review and analyze. With diminishing time and money available to maintain sewers, municipalities must embrace new technologies that enable rapid assessment. Side-scanning returns a flat digital image of the interior of pipes, allowing the entire pipe to be viewed at once. In this white paper, Envirosight discusses the merits of side-scanning technology and the ways in which it can make municipal pipe inspection more efficient and cost-effective. In addition, they provide a guide to choosing a side-scanning system.

The Rise of Smart Crawlers
The past decade has seen smart technologies proliferate across a variety of products. Now, smart crawlers are helping make sewer inspection more productive, adaptable and reliable by implementing CANbus, a flexible digital control architecture already used in automobiles and aircraft. In this free white paper, Envirosight details the benefits that smart crawlers using CANbus provide.

Deciding Between Spot Repair and End-to-End Rehab Methods
Maintaining a collections system is complicated, requiring operators to balance available resources with the needs of the system, particularly when weighing localized rehab (spot repair) against comprehensive (end-to-end) alternatives. In a new white paper, Envirosight details the top considerations when choosing between the two, including I&I mitigation, treatment costs, planned upgrades, the pervasiveness of damage, environmental factors and upgrade schedules.

Sewer Rehab Strategy Worksheet
Many municipalities utilize end-to-end (manhole-to-manhole) sewer rehab methods by default, but this can waste time and money. Envirosight’s new Sewer Rehab Strategy Worksheet helps you make an informed decision between end-to-end rehab and point repair alternatives. It presents major considerations as a series of yes or no questions and offers a quick, clear way to turn your answers into an action plan.

From WinCan: Sewer Asset Data Moves to the Cloud
Storing your data in the cloud makes that data more accessible and reliable, allowing operators, supervisors and engineers to work more efficiently. Additionally, cloud-based hosting significantly lowers both server costs and security risks. In this white paper, WinCan discusses these benefits and others, laying out why sewer inspection data belongs in the cloud.

Watch a Webinar on PASS
Envirosight’s free webinar, Making Smarter Sewer Decisions: An Introduction to PASS, was live Dec. 13, but it’s still available to you. The recorded webinar includes the slides that were presented and a Q&A session.
