Topic: Repair of underground Water storage sump

Dear friends,
The underground sump (11000 litres) at my house receives drinking water supplied by city's metro water supply.
Unfortunately it is noted recently that the water inside sump is seen blackish and contaminated by getting mixed with outside drain water,probably water getting entry through the tree roots.
The roots from nearby tress have penetrated through side walls of water storage sump.The use of sump is therefore discontinued and the incoming valve is kept closed.
T
he top concreted floor is paved with tiles.The manhole to enter the sump is small to assess the nature and exact extent of damage. Moreover there is no  visibility even if inspection lamp is used.
It is practically difficult to inspect the defect and the only option could be to cut open the top concreted portion with flooring
(6" thickness) which is quite expensive and time consuming. 

Shall be very thankful to receive advice as how the sump can be repaired and restored at least expense?

Regards,
N.V.Mani.
