SewerAI Achieves Certification

SewerAI has achieved NASSCO MACP certification for import and export of sewer manhole (MH) data for condition assessment

SewerAI, based in Walnut Creek, California, USA and creator of AutoCodeTM and PioneerTM, has achieved NASSCO MACP certification for import and export of sewer manhole (MH) data (also increasingly referred to as ‘maintenance holes’) for condition assessment.

SewerAI Corporation has achieved certification from the National Association of Sewer Service Companies (NASSCO) for use of the Manhole Assessment Certification Program (MACP) in software import and export in its award-winning Cloud platform for inspection data management, PioneerTM, enabling SewerAI to provide condition assessment deliverables from inspections of vertical drainage structures in accordance with an industry standard common throughout North America. This latest certification is in addition to the Lateral Assessment Certification Program (LACPŸ) received in August 2021, and the Pipeline Assessment Certification Program (PACPŸ) software certification SewerAI received in March 2021.

SewerAI provides wastewater condition assessment services leveraging AutoCodeTM which is a computer vision technology that automatically identifies conditions in CCTV and Digital Side Scan (DSS) inspection data.

SewerAI’s industry leading cloud platform for inspection data management, PioneerTM, is now certified to provide MACP deliverables to the wastewater industry. A growing number of sewer utilities, services contractors, and consulting engineers have chosen to innovate by leveraging AI and cloud computing to lower inspection costs, accelerate processes, and render higher quality data that drives strategic asset planning.

This latest NASSCO certification means the PioneerTM platform now provides seamless conversions from archival MACP datasets coming from previously-certified legacy inspection software platforms, of which there are many.

According to the EPA in the USA, there are approximately 20 million MHs in the country, and these structures perform critical functions in sewer collection systems by enabling pipe connections and changes in a sewer’s trajectory downstream, and also by providing access points for maintenance, rehabilitation, and inspection. Because MHs are installed at varying depths with components interfacing with streets and surface features, these structures must withstand a wide variety of different deterioration mechanisms from changes in the weather, in elevation of the groundwater table, as well as the defects affecting pipelines, such as Hydrogen Sulphide (H2S) corrosion. Because of this, it is imperative wastewater utilities conduct rigorous and accurate inspections of MHs to properly plan for future rehabilitation or replacement.

According to Eric Sullivan, a NASSCO Trainer as well as SewerAI’s Director of Business Development: “The ability to provide contractors, consulting engineers, and wastewater utilities with MACP deliverables, in addition to our existing offering for mainline and lateral sewer condition assessment, means our customers can now comprehensively understand the entirety of the wastewater collection system.” Regarding what motivated SewerAI to pursue the MACP offering, Mr Sullivan mentioned: “We have always listened intently to the needs and feedback from our customers, and the requests for an MACP solution were difficult to ignore, especially as this portion of our overall business has grown exponentially these last 2 years. We are very excited to continue to enable our customers to evolve beyond outdated legacy software platforms and workflows by leveraging our technologies.”

SewerAI’s dual offering of its AutoCodeTM AI computer vision tools and its PioneerTM cloud-based platform enables wastewater utilities to extend the Remaining Useful Life (RUL) of their assets by reducing inspection costs, accelerating office and field workflows, and contributing to an elevation in the quality, accuracy, and consistency of condition assessment data.
