In addition to irrigation and plumbing, our team routinely works with land developers, remodel teams, and other industries to provide excavation and trenching services in both residential and commercial areas.
Trenching and Excavation Services
While well drilling is necessary to install a water well, the surrounding pipe infrastructure requires excavation or trenching – using heavy equipment to dig a long, narrow cavity deep within the ground. In the case of the pipe system that carries water from the well to the home, it’s necessary to dig well below the frost line to prevent the pipes from freezing and possibly bursting. In Waterford CT and the surrounding area, the frost line is 12 inches below the surface, though most pipes are laid significantly deeper than that.
Along with installing new wells and connecting pipes, our trenching contractors also work on a variety of repairs and projects.
Access breaks and leaks in the water lines from the well to the home.
Running water lines to multiple locations from one main source.
Re-route water service, such as when a new well is dug for an existing property.
Locating abandoned wells and existing lines.
Preparing water lines in the foundation prior to new home construction.
We also provide excavation services to the agriculture and farming industry to assist with building irrigation systems as they often require a network of underground pipes extending from an existing well across fields, livestock pens, and into ponds.
