I&I Locating Services using the iTracker®
iTracking is the latest in I&I locating technology. Deployed as a network of sensors, iTrackers can monitor hundreds of manholes simultaneously and detect any change to flow caused by infiltration or inflow. After only 1-2 weather events, you can know exactly where your I&I at a fraction of the cost of traditional methods.
RH Borden locates I&I with Major and Target Basin assessment:
- During a Major Basin Assessment, an iTracker is placed at the downstream manhole of each major basin in the study. As wet weather occurs, the iTracker can immediately identify which major basin is the primary contributor to the overall I&I in the system.
- In Target Basin Asessments, iTracker sensors are strategically placed throughout the entire basin creating an intelligent series of independent micro-basins every . With iTracking’s patented ability to isolate flows, the I&I is quickly detected…many times after just a single rain event.
The SL-RAT is helping us to support the rapid growth of our collection system.
The SL-RAT service has improved our maintenance program, cut actual costs, and given us much more confidence and trackability concerning the condition of our system.
This new technology does appear to be valuable in reducing the City’s labor costs by reducing the regular practice of cleaning pipes that may not need to be cleaned... So far this means a reduction of cleaning responsibilities by 10X!

Due to the success of acoustic assessments in our city, we are in the process of updating our SSMP to incorporate this into our annual plan for collection system maintenance.
This is the most amazing device I have seen in 40 years! We can now assess our entire system every year for less than what we were spending to maintain a third of it.
Great to work with, he very informative and responsive. RH Borden has impressed me with their customer service and support.
