HYDERABAD: Robots will now clear up sewerage pipelines in the city. The robot will have a rotor that can chew into the sludge and clear the path for the free flow of sewage. HMWSSB currently employs jet pump machines to clear sewerage pipelines. The robot will be used in pipelines that have been blocked by tree roots. The robot will be operated by a third party who will be hired on a contract basis. The measure is expected to be operational before April end.

To help remove clogs in narrow roads and areas, that are difficult for the mini jetting machines, HMWSSB engineers are designing miniature jetting machines that can be deployed on vehicles with just 1-metre long chassis. This is after the engineers designed the mini jetting machines that have been deployed on trucks with 2-metre long chassis. The department now operates 71 such mini jetting machines that even caught the eye of the Prime Ministers Office (PMO) and generated interest from the Delhi Government. HMWSSB is also planning on procuring suction machines, “powerful enough to suck out a boulder from the pipes.”
