Camera Scoping Survey
Camera scoping surveys are a major maintenance activity as they have the following general attributes:
The review is used to determine:
  • Root damage to pipe.
  • Sediment build-up in pipe.
  • Bellying of pipe.
  • Stress fractures in pipe
The review will recommend the need for any hydro-flushing or augering of pipe.

n order to establish a strategy for scoping of the in-ground infrastructure.
  • Site topography (steep, flat)
  • Location of and accessibility of cleanouts
  • Prevalence of RWL discharge at grade or into buried tight pipe
  • Soil conditions (aligatoring of asphalt paving, subsidence, differential settlement, etc.)
  • Water table (streams nearby, retention ponds, etc.)
  • Run off patterns – paved overburdens or soft landscaping, perimeter gravel beds
  • Discussions with residents about basement floods, ponding water, etc
