Comprehensive Risk Management of 500 Municipalities in Oklahoma
Oklahoma Municipal Assurance Group partnered with Duke’s
In order to provide a comprehensive risk management program for its 500 municipalities, Oklahoma Municipal Assurance Group partnered with Duke’s to provide sewer root control treatments to participating municipalities. In one city, 14,000 linear feet were inspected, and Duke’s acoustic inspection identified significant blockages and poor scores. The lines were treated using Duke’s RazoRooter® II an herbicide-laden, thick foam that kills roots on contact, penetrating through Wye connections and also killing roots in laterals.
Upon inspection of manholes after treatment, there were no stoppages and no overflows in the city. RazoRooter® II allows roots to decay naturally and slough away, with regrowth delayed for two to three years.
