Application: A trenchless method of constructing new sewer and water pipe without requiring man-entry. Typically used for pipes ranging from 18-inches to 54-inches in diameter and 40- to 50-feet in depth.
Advantages: Our microtunneling method uses a "closed system;" water and mud removed from the ground are separated, decreasing the risk of environmental contamination. Because we complete microtunneling projects using safe, laser-guided equipment, there is minimal disruption to surface activities. Microtunneling is particularly effective in below-groundwater conditions and unconsolidated soils and where above- and below-ground obstructions exist.
