You know that only about 11% of your system needs to be cleaned.

Call us at (385) 228-5350 to find out which 11% that is.

Done For You

Because public works departments often have more work than staff to do it, RH Borden has developed the assessment-as-a-service program especially for small and rapidly-growing systems. For a fraction of the cost of cleaning, RH Borden crews will assess your entire system over the course of a few days, track your data, and give you a complete GIS map showing exactly which manholes and pipe segments need attention.

The SL-RAT—Using "Sound Science" to:

–Save time

–Save water

–Save money

The Sewer Line-Rapid Assessment Tool (SL-RAT) uses sound to easily and quickly assess the health of any segment of pipe. Using the SL-RAT, a two-man crew can assess over 20,000 feet of pipe in a day. You can quickly know which segments of your collection system need cleaning and which are already clean.

Data Management:

–See your system as never before

–Track your trends

–Share your results

The SL-RAT collects data about pipe conditions, segment length and GPS locations, and our crews add visual inspection information, notes and pictures. All this data goes into RH Borden's industry-leading data management and visualization solution, which is easily shared with city councilors, stakeholders, and crew members.


Your data from RH Borden includes a complete GIS map of  your system at no extra charge.

Since 2018 RH Borden has assessed over 11 million feet of pipe.

And more than 80% of it did not need to be cleaned.
