Tile Camera

Tile camera investigation saturated buffer


One of the questions most frequently asked by landowners when discussing native plantings in agricultural fields is, “Will this plug my tile?” This project addresses the question by inspecting select agricultural tile lines under native plantings with a tile/sewer camera by accessing the outlet or an inlet. The recorded footage can be matched with locator readings and plant identification above notable root infiltrations into the agricultural tile to begin to more definitively identify some of the common species, native or not, infiltrating agricultural tiles under native plantings
