Water / Sewer Main Installation, Service, & Repair
A successful project starts with a solid plan. Without knowledge of the ins and outs of the construction process, the details can be overwhelming. When it comes to the complex process of installing and connecting public water and sewer mains, even the slightest misstep can sink a project.
In order to clear the way for a system that flows smoothly, our team knows local regulations like the back of our hand. Having established an excellent reputation with local towns, public works, and engineers, we regularly communicate with them to ensure zoning and equipment compliance.
A System That Flows.
The water and sewer main system is the artery of your building’s water supply. If done incorrectly, a chain reaction of problems can lead to quite a mess. For this reason, our team of experts carefully follows a step-by-step process to ensure efficient and accurate results.
For starters, we excavate the site and prepare it for development. With attention to specifications and safety standards, we dig the trenches and ready them for pipe installation. Then, we lay the pipe and connect it to the existing water main supply. When the job is done right from the very start, systems will flow free and clear for years to come.
In spite of even the best system installation, the long-term effects of moisture and corrosion can eventually cause everything from cracks and leaks to a plugged system. Sometimes it takes more than a plunger to solve a problem. When issues arise, our team is readily available to assess, diagnose, and repair your system. Instead of waiting for a problem to get worse, prompt and professional service saves you further cost and damage to your property. If you have any concerns with your water/sewer lines, large or small, just contact us to keep your system flowing.
Storm Water Management
All Maine residents know that the weather can change at a moment’s notice. Our bright blue skies can suddenly darken with a sweeping storm. Consequently, flash floods and the remaining standing water can cause big problems. Not only is it damaging to your property, but it is also a safety hazard that can carry pollutants into the environment. It can even affect your drinking water and health.
Because clean water is truly essential to life, we place great importance on storm water management for our commercial construction services.
We Focus On Best Management Practices.
Water Quality & Control – We manage the disposal of construction site waste in accordance with federal and local regulations. This limits run-off pollution that threatens the surrounding environment. Also, we secure sand and cement on site to prevent it from washing into drains and local water sources.
Erosion Control – We use erosion control measures appropriate for each site design and topography. This includes phasing construction activity, controlling the flow of storm water in and around the project (e.g. diversion ditches), stabilizing the soil with appropriate covers, and protecting slopes (e.g. erosion control blankets, etc.).
Storm Ponds – We create a basin near the perimeter of the site to divert and collect storm water run-off. This allows sediment to settle and reduces off-site transportation.
