Trenchless Sewer Repair

Trenchless sewer repair job in progress
Trenchless sewer and pipe repair is an excellent method for replacing old sewer lines and installing irrigation pipelines underground. Its ideal when navigating complex landscaping situations caused by natural or man-made obstacles like trees, flower beds, pavement, walls and other common structures.Environmental Works conducts trenchless repair using specialized boring and pipe bursting techniques that leave minimal impact to the surrounding environment. This reduces site restoration costs and minimizes man hours. 

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.
