MAINTENANCE OF LINES & EQUIPMENT
Our facilities are extensive, with most components over sixty years old. This fact requires our ongoing focus on repair and maintenance, and preventive maintenance. We are quite proud of our performance in maintaining our facilities.
We are continuously working on improving our collection system, where our principal focus is infiltration and inflow abatement. This effort is our most critical undertaking at this time, and it is taken very seriously.
The same thing is true at the treatment plant, where minor repairs are tackled by the in-house staff on a continuous basis. Larger more complicated repairs or replacements of equipment are done by outside specialized contractors.
AVMA completed the planning, design and construction of a major treatment plant upgrade, to better enable us to handle periodic high flows created by rainfall.
The AVMA has closed circuit televising equipment that enables the operators to go inside the sewer lines and identify Infiltration sources and defects that require repairs.
