S&DS CLEANING

(Ken Futey, General Foreman)

The Cleaning section is responsible for cleaning sanitary sewer lines in the City of Toledo. Cleaning operations range from “jetting the lines” to remove build up and debris using a water truck or combination vacuum/water truck to root cutting and foaming.

 

PIPE PATCH

(Dan Grady, Foreman)

The pipe patch team is responsible for our “no dig” technique to repair infrastructure. 

More information on the “no dig” process can be seen by clicking here.

 

S&DS CONSTRUCTION

(Desi Cartlidge, General Foreman)

The construction section is responsible for main sewer line repairs and lateral repairs in the right of way. Unless a repair to a main can be done using a “no dig” repair, our construction section will usually have to dig to make the repair.

If a repair is too deep, it is referred to our Inspection Section to be contracted out as an emergency repair.

 

DITCH MAINTENANCE

(Ron Hanf, Supervisor)

While most ditches are privately maintained, the Ditch Maintenance section has limited responsibility for some maintenance to ditches that belong to the City of Toledo. This maintenance is primarily done in for our storm water systems in order to prevent flooding and sewer overflows. Typically they clear debris grates or “trash racks” and maintain access to points for our storm water system such as those that outfall to receiving water such as a ditch.

CCTV

INSPECTION

(Ron Hanf, Utilities Supervisor)

The inspection section is responsible for inspecting sewer repairs, permitting residential taps & repairs, and monitoring emergency sewer repairs that are too deep for our internal construction crews to dig.

Additionally, the inspection section also is responsible for licensure of private sewer tappers & cleaners. ONLY licensed Sewer Tappers may perform any work on the City of Toledo sewer system.
