A Vactor Truck Rental or Purchase Could Save the Day

Back in June of 2012, The Epoch Times staff Zachary Stieber filed a report about a citywide sewer cleanup that took place with Vactor truck rental units in New York. Debris collected for the project was enough to fill up three Olympic-sized swimming pools. This served as a wake-up call for New Yorkers to be cautious about what they throw down the drain.

The sewer cleanup will continue over several years, along with other cleanup efforts as part of an overall green infrastructure upgrade representing $5 billion in public and private investment. The plan was initiated because the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) surveyed 136 miles of large interceptor sewers using a floating sonar device and discovered that around one-fifth of the sewers needed extensive cleaning.
