Dig deep for savings in trenchless technology

The water industry faces a constant challenge: maintaining and expanding vital pipelines while minimizing disruption. Traditional open-cut trenching disrupts traffic, damages landscapes, and can be expensive. But there's a better way: trenchless technology.

The water industry faces a constant challenge: maintaining and expanding vital pipelines while minimizing disruption. Traditional open-cut trenching disrupts traffic, damages landscapes, and can be expensive. But there’s a better way: trenchless technology.

Trenchless technology offers a suite of methods for installing and repairing underground pipes without digging giant trenches. This translates to significant benefits for the water industry:

  • Minimized Disruption: Trenchless methods bypass roads, sidewalks, and environmentally sensitive areas, keeping communities running smoothly.
  • Faster Completion: Projects are completed quicker, reducing the inconvenience for residents and businesses.
  • Reduced Costs: Less excavation translates to lower labour and material costs compared to traditional trenching.
  • Environmental Benefits: Trenchless methods minimize soil disturbance and protect ecosystems.

Trenchless solutions for every need

The water industry utilizes various trenchless techniques for different applications:

  • Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD): A pilot hole is drilled underground, followed by a reaming process to create a tunnel for installing new pipes.
  • Pipe Bursting: A bursting head fractures the old pipe while simultaneously pulling a new, stronger pipe into place.
  • Microtunneling: A guided boring machine excavates a small tunnel and installs pipes in diameters ranging from a few feet to several meters.
  • Cured-in-Place Pipe (CIPP): A resin-coated liner is inserted into the existing pipe and cured with heat or light, creating a new, structurally sound pipe within the old one.

Investing in the future

Trenchless technology is an investment in the future of our water infrastructure. It allows for efficient upgrades and repairs, minimizes environmental impact, and keeps communities functioning with minimal disruption.
