Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
A typical city of 100,000 produces millions of gallons of wastewater every day. In this program, Harold Gorman, of the New Orleans Sewerage and Water Board; Teresa Battenfield, director of Houston's wastewater treatment plant; Casi Callaway, executive director of Mobile Bay Watch; and many others consider the challenges of collecting wastewater via aging pipes as populations continue to grow. Stormwater infiltration and high water tables are singled out for special scrutiny. In addition, a number of infrastructure assessment and rehabilitation projects using computerized mapping, remote control video cameras, and other means are highlighted.
