Trenchless Sewer Repair
| By Environmental Works
Sewer bursting is when new sewer pipe is pushed through the old pipe in a way that physically bursts it apart. In its place lies a high density polyethylene pipe with a decades long service life. The job concludes with the installation of new and improved connections at both ends of the line.
Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD), also known as pipe boring, is another method of trenchless pipe repair. Directional drilling rigs bore a path for laying underground utilities like sewer pipe. As with pipe bursting, horizontal directional drilling leaves a low impact to landscape.
