SA Water deploys remote-control boats Plop-eye, Indeepship to monitor sludge

Press/Media: Press / Media

Description

"Plop-eye" and "Indeepship" are the names cheeky SA Water staff have given to two remote-control boats they will use to do a job no human would ever want.

The boats will be launched into the sludge ponds at waste water treatment plants in Murray Bridge and used to monitor sediment build-up.

Each is equipped with a sonar device that can help SA Water staff understand how often the ponds should be cleaned out to keep unpleasant smells from drifting into surrounding neighbourhoods.
