OPERATIONS Leaf Collection Season Ends Cleaning and Video Survey of Sewer Interceptors The project, which began in the fall of 2016, was completed this quarter. Swift Creek and McGregor interceptors were completed, which involved cleaning approximately 42,000 feet of pipe. The next interceptors planned for cleaning include Crabtree Creek and Kit Creek, which total another 50,000 feet. The purpose of the Sewer Interceptor cleaning project is to remove debris from large sewer interceptor lines and preserve the intended flow capacity of the pipeline. This ensures reliable performance and reduces the potential for sanitary sewer overflows. The picture to the right shows some of the debris that is removed from the pipes. Critical Water Line Locating Project Approximately 10 percent of Cary's 1,063 miles of water mains were installed using non-metallic materials prior to 1975. In 2014, the Town established a multi-year project to improve locating, mapping and inspection of the water system infrastructure in critical water transmission corridors. This 10-year plan costs $175,000 per year. The Town is working with our contractor to determine GPS coordinates for each main line valve. This will ultimately be stored with GIS information using Salesforce. Solid Waste Tonnage Comparison
