DSCN1122Outfalls need to have periodic inspections performed to ensure that they are in good working condition, including all diffuser ports and the interior of the out fall.  Poor flow though diffuser ports could indicate that there is accumulated material inside of the outfall pipeline that may need to be removed.  Neglect of outfalls can lead to costly repairs in the long run, for example, separated joints, end cap failure, material build up and buried diffuser ports.
