Lee’s Summit uses device to inspect condition of water line without shutting off water flow

Published March 21, 2019

Rumble Leaders in Lee’s Summit, Missouri, will learn about the condition one of its most important water mains by using a device for the first time which allows for an inspection without turning off the water. The sanitized “PipeDiver” will travel through the 2.5 feet wide pipe for six miles. Along the way the PipeDiver will collect information about the quality of the line which pumps drinking water into the city from a treatment center in Independence.
