GRANVILLE, N. D. – When the Community of Granville couldn’t locate a sewer blockage that was causing sewage backups for residents, they contacted the North Dakota Rural Water Systems Association.

“We jetted the main, but the contractor hit a dead end and couldn’t go any further,” explained Granville System Operations Specialist Paul Rosencrans. “We requested Rural Water bring the sewer camera just to see what was going on.”

Sewer jetting uses high-pressure water sprayers to high-pressure water jets to clear obstructions in residential and commercial drain pipes as well as larger municipal sewer systems. The jetting removed some ice frozen in the sewer but didn’t solve the backup problems.

“The customer on the end of the line was still having sewer problems,” said Les Sigette, a NDRWSA Wastewater Technician. “I brought the association sewer camera to try to find the obstruction.”
