​​Do you know what happens to the water that goes down your drain?

What is happening?

A system of underground pipes and pumps takes our wastewater away to be carefully treated and disposed of, putting it back deep into the ground to be used again in the future or recycling it to help irrigate public spaces and parks.

​When is it happening?

As part of our ongoing preventative maintenance and inspection program, EPCOR will be using state-of-the-art robotic video cameras to inspect some sewer mains and manholes in Sun City. Inspections will start in mid-April and are expected to finish by the end of June.

Residents and visitors can expect to see a camera truck, similar in size to a rented moving truck, parked near manholes. The truck controls and monitors the video camera as it records information about the pipes below. Once inspection of a particular pipe segment is complete, the truck will move to a different manhole and the process is repeated.

During this work, the truck will generate some noise and create minor traffic restrictions. Safety cones will be used to divert traffic around the truck.

The inspections might require excavation to expose buried manholes and raise them to the surface. As you might know, some manholes in Sun City are located in residential front yards.

We’ll be working closely with our contractor to ensure our work has minimal impact on residents.
