Outfall Inspection

Summary:

Help Watershed UGA monitor for leaks on campus.

Contact: Office of Sustainability’s Tyra Byers (tyrab@uga.edu).   

Details:

In the past we’ve been very successful in identifying leaking sewer lines through inspections of stormwater outfalls and manholes.  We need a team to develop a map and monitoring schedule for all of the outfalls/manholes throughout campus and then actually begin the monitoring process.  This will involve some interaction with the Athens-Clarke County Stormwater Program’s Cecile Riker.  References:  Philipp Nussbaum’s video on ACC outfall inspections which we will send upon request, existing maps.
