Featured Project: Denver Water Service Disconnects

History

Our BTrenchless Vac crews have completed multiple disconnection projects for Front Range municipalities and private entities. This project entailed service line disconnections via vacuum excavation for our client, Commercial Building Services (Denver Water Board waterline service disconnects).

Challenges

Even with the most accurate underground utility locates, one never knows what you'll find below the surface...at one hole, the crews encountered concrete storm sewer drain box atop the service and at another,  an inordinate amount of groundwater.   

Solutions

The concrete covered services line required additional excavation to allow for the disconnect.  Suspecting that the hole with the high groundwater may have been the result of some loss of integrity within the existing pipeline, DWB was notified of the high water conditions at the site.  With the assistance of our pothole crew, a leak in the pipe was discovered and repaired.
