Video Pipe Inspection At Pharmaceutical Site - Massachusetts

Recently GPRS was called out to a Pharmaceutical site in Framingham, MA for an inspection of their sanitary sewer system.

The sewer inspection took place over the course of six days. While working on-site GPRS closely followed safety regulations, including wearing proper PPE and coning off the area of work to keep pedestrians safe. During our pipe inspection we used our Robotic crawler camera to inspect the main sanitary lines as well as our push camera when the crawler was not feasible.
