SuperVision 250 Scans Sewers

The EPA seems to be concerned about sewer and storm pipes that are leaking. So they have employed the Envirosight SuperVision 250 to go where humans would rather not. It can be put in 10 - 72" diameter pipes while its operators watch the feed from a 10x optical zoom auto-focus camera. They can also pan and tilt the device. The crawler is made of stainless steel and a sapphire window for protection against sewer evils and can travel as far as 1,640 ft. before running out of cord.
