The Importance of SSES for I/I Control, Asset Management, and Regulatory Compliance

ADS offers Sewer System Evaluation Surveys (SSES). We have more experience in sewer diagnostic and field investigation activities than any other company in the industry. We have the resources and personnel to effectively manage the inventory, condition, and performance analysis required for successful SSES projects. The ADS team has successfully performed hundreds of Consent Order driven projects. Throughout our history, ADS has managed SSES programs through a unique, systematic approach utilizing quality-controlled tasks including, flow monitoring, dye water testing, manhole inspections, flow isolations, and smoke testing.

The focus of our methodology is to perform targeted SSES work so that our clients spend less money on expensive rehabilitation and construction efforts while maximizing removal of I/I. ADS invests significant time and effort in training programs and resources to ensure its project personnel are adequately equipped with the appropriate knowledge and skills to perform their job at the highest capacity. In addition to the extensive training provided to the field staff, ADS requires that their SSES project managers follow ISO 9001 certified Quality Management System, which includes a project management plan.
