Water blaster keeps Durango sewer lines clear of obstructions

City offers specialized equipment to Fort Lewis College
Nate Mallett, left, and Gilbert Martinez, right, perform maintenance on Tanglewood Drive to keep sewer lines clear. The city’s “combination sewer cleaner” uses 3,000 pounds per square inch of water pressure to break through obstructions. The city plans to partner with Fort Lewis College to provide similar services for the college’s sewer infrastructure.
