Is It Possible to Plug an Under Surface Pipe For Inspection?

Is it possible to plug a pipe which is approximately 30' below ground surface and under water so that the pipe can be inspected?

When investigating sewer problems, there are all kinds of ways to plug a pipe below ground. We have test balls that can be inserted through a clean-out and then blown up to stop the flow of water. This allows the water to be pumped from the pipe and so it can be inspected with a special camera to determine any required corrective action. Most Roto-Rooter locations have equipment necessary to detect and solve underground pipe problems.
