The Cost of Expansion

Posted by Nicole Lygo on Oct 31, 2018 6:40:52 PM

With the possibility of more federal investment in infrastructure on the horizon, many municipal contractors are looking to increase their capabilities. American wastewater systems are rapidly degrading, so rehabilitation is one of the larger areas of growth. Depending on what type of work your business already offers, some rehabilitation methods may be easier to get into than others. For spot (point) repairs, the most popular options are CIPP spot liners (generally under four feet), mechanical point repair sleeves and grout. Each method has its strengths and weaknesses as a repair solution, and each one has variable costs in terms of initial capital and maintenance cost. Getting an idea of what different methods can cost may give you a starting point for choosing the best option for your business.

Grout is Out!

When choosing the proper pipeline rehabilitation technique, repair teams need an effective and lasting solution. Trenchless or no-dig technologies are preferable to high-cost, high-risk trenching alternatives whenever possible, as they save resources and cause minimal disturbance during installation. Yet while all trenchless solutions bring these benefits, some prove to be more practical than others.

Subsurface Utility Imaging Leads Trenchless Rehab with Quick-Lock

Posted by Allison Symonds on May 17, 2018 10:30:00 AM

sui-logo-large1Subsurface Utility Imaging (SUI) has been identifying, marking, tracing, mapping, cleaning and inspecting underground utilities since its founding in 2010, but it was recently called in for a unique project. An old warehouse in upstate New York had been wasting away, largely vacant and unused until an engine manufacturer signed on to lease the entire facility. However, before moving in, a remodel was required, including an evaluation of the vast network of sanitary and stormwater conveyance piping underneath the warehouse.

When Thorough Repair Becomes Overkill

Posted by Katie Breeden on Feb 6, 2018 1:11:05 PM

Sewer rehabilitation is resource intensive. The larger and older a sewer is, the more frequently it requires maintenance, and the more costly and time-consuming that maintenance can be. Many municipalities rely solely on end-to-end (manhole-to-manhole) rehabilitation techniques like CIPP, pipe bursting and slip-lining to repair failing lines. While end-to-end methods can repair common defects in sewer pipe, in certain situations they can be overkill and a waste of time and money. That’s where spot (or point) repairs are more useful. Because of their targeted nature, spot repairs are able to address localized defects less expensively, faster, and often with less disruption than end-to-end methods. When a single line has multiple defects, however, the decision between spot and end-to-end methods requires careful consideration.
