Open trench sewer repairs are typically utilized for small, localized spot fixes, or when the sewer pipe is completely collapsed. In the Pacific Northwest, there are many times, while doing a camera inspection of a sewer pipe, that we find only one major problem area. Around the Western Washington area, this is usually a root intrusion or belly in the pipe. In these cases, we are able to dig up a smaller section of the sewer line and replace just that portion, saving the customer the huge cost of an entire replacement.
Although we usually try to reline sewer mains because it saves time and landscaping, we sometimes come across a sewer pipe that is completely collapsed. When your sewer line is collapsed, there is no choice but to perform open trench excavation for repairs. Before any sewer trench digging can take place, we must first hear from several different inspectors, depending on the location. These inspectors will come out and locate any utility lines that may be in the surrounding areas. This is in everyone’s best interest, as we don’t want to sever or puncture any gas, electric, or any other type of lines.
For your convenience, we include the cost of permits in our estimates. Along with the permit, we also handle any traffic plans that may be required. Our highly skilled open trench sewer repair experts know where to properly set up signs and cones to allow for the safe repair of your sewer mainlines in the street or Right of Way (ROW). Some open trench sewer repair jobs that are closer to the road require us to divert traffic, or close bike lanes and sidewalks.
