Texas Environmental Excellence Award
Texas Commission on Environmental Quality
The City of Fort Worth Water Department's Interceptor Condition Assessment Program has received the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality's Texas Environmental Excellence Award.
The City worked with White Rock Consultants and Freese and Nichols to develop the multi-year Interceptor Condition Assessment Program (ICAP). Sonar, 3-D lasers and high-definition video inspect pipes and large sewer inceptors from the inside, determining where repairs are needed. The largest known implementation of this technology in the world, ICAP has already saved the City $4.5 million in cleaning costs and $3 million to $6 million in prevention of line failures.
