At PICA Corp, we have been performing condition assessments of pipelines throughout North America for over 10 years. We specialize in providing our clients with top-notch technology to provide accurate, reliable "remaining wall thickness" measurements for the full pipeline length inspected.
Waste Water and Force Main pipeline inspections are an integral part of both daily operations and safety measures for municipalities and townships. Spills from failed pipelines not only run the risk of making locals sick but also causing lasting damage to the native aquatic fauna. As a result, the Environmental Protection Agency hands out millions of dollars of fines each year. To avoid complications and hefty payments, having your pipelines regularly inspected is a necessity and a good investment.
Water main inspection is an integral part of ensuring your pipelines are in working shape and best equipped to transport water safely. Without regular inspection, you run the risk of corrosion build-up causing significant and costly damage to your water main. Read on to learn how to prevent the headache of repairs!
Waste water leakage is a major problem that causes significant health threat to area residents, pets, wild animals and flora and fauna of the affected area. Each year, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that approximate 3 to 10 billion gallons of raw sewage leak from the 1.2 million miles of waste water pipelines that stretch across North America.
In November of 2017, a southern California Water Authority retained PICA to inspect 4 miles of 66” C-301, PCCP pipe lined with a 64” steel liner. PICA constructed a special EMIT Tool inside the pipeline, by passing the Tool parts through a manhole and assembling the Tool inside.
