Michels recently purchased eight Camel 1200 wastewater recycling sewer and catch basin cleaning trucks to become the largest owner of the advanced equipment in the United States. John Manijak, business development manager, will use more than 17 years of experience in the municipal sewer cleaning industry, including about a year at Michels, to coordinate the expanded services from Michels’ regional office in Montgomery, Ill. Manijak’s extensive experience includes office and field management which he combines to provide customers with optimal solutions.

Unlike traditional cleaning systems that require substantial amounts of fresh water, these cutting-edge vehicles use a unique onboard wastewater recycling technology. The truck’s 1,500-gal. water tank is filled once, and the wastewater collected throughout the day is continuously cleaned and reused for jetting as it removes accumulated sediment, trash and debris from sewers and catch basins. The system allows Michels technicians and trucks to continuously perform thorough high-pressure cleaning rather than repeatedly stop and mobilize for untimely water refills. The result is more time spent performing necessary services and less water discharged into sewer systems.
