first_imgEvansville Water and Sewer Utility to Demonstrate New CCTV Trucks for Cub Scout STEM Field TripThe Evansville Water and Sewer Utility (EWSU) will demonstrate a new CCTV truck for Cub Scout Pack 383 from Aldersgate United Methodist Church. The demonstration will be held this Saturday, August 31, from 9:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. at the EWSU Operations and Engineering Facility, 1931 Allens Lane. The Cub Scouts are learning various ways science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) are used in jobs today, which is one of the requirements to achieve the Cub Scout Supernova award. The field trip will allow them to see how robotics and electronics enable utility workers to look inside pipes underground without physically entering the pipeline.“We want to expose Cubs to how important STEM is in everyday jobs,” said Cub Master Keith Penney, who is an EWSU accountant. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects STEM-related jobs will grow to more than nine million by the year 2022.Two new state-of-the-art closed-circuit TV trucks were added to the EWSU fleet earlier this month to perform pipeline video inspections. The CCTV trucks were built with input from utility employees, resulting in a more user-friendly sewer inspection vehicle.EWSU Technical Services Manager Andrew Peters said one of the CCTV trucks will be used to televise and inspect a pipe at the EWSU property on Allens Lane. Media coverage of the demonstration is welcome. Reporters are asked to introduce themselves to Peters upon arrival on site. FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailShare ###last_img
