Manhole and Sewer Survey, Eccles Sewage Works

United Utilities

United Utilities needed to investigate the performance of overflows in and around Eccles Sewage Treatment Works.

RPS was asked to carry out a comprehensive survey that included manhole, CCTV and confined space man entry sewer surveys. The man entry survey was carried out in a large diameter brick sewer in a critical location. CCTV surveys by others had failed to give the detail required on this critical asset and the client required a visual and photographic inspection. The inspection, called a traverse, required a detailed safety assessment and plan. It was successfully completed with a 5 man specialist team and the client was able to use the records and photographic evidence as the benchmark for assessing any future deterioration.
