Cleaning out our pipes

Jan 11, 2023

The City of Rehoboth Beach will undertake its annual cleaning and inspection of sanitary and storm sewer buried infrastructure, or pipes, beginning in mid-January. This work will continue over an approximately six-week period.

A large sewer vacuum truck is used to "power wash" the inside of the pipes. After pipes have been cleaned, a video camera is used to assess the integrity  of the pipes and identify any areas that may need to be repaired or replaced.
