Robots to invade Shaler’s sewer system

Kevin Creagh, township engineer, explained that RedZone Robotics Inc., of Carnegie Mellon University, has divided the township into eight areas and each year sends robotic cameras into a section of the sanitary sewer system looking for breaks, leaks, roots and other invaders that need to be terminated before they cause expensive damage. The automated technology has saved Shaler some serious money — at least $300,000 a year.
