Excavation Sewer Water and Gas Lines

The excavation of gas lines, water lines, or sewer lines is something that should be handled by professionals. Excavating any sort of utility lines can be a major hazard, and should only be undertaken by those who truly know what they are doing. Digging to lay down new natural gas lines, new water lines, or sewer lines could result in striking old gas lines, electric lines, or pipelines for other utilities, and digging around gas lines, water lines, or sewer lines pose the same problems.

Explosions can result when excavation around these lines if you are not following the proper procedures. This is why 911 or other emergency responders need to be contacted immediately if you strike an existing gas line or other underground utility pipeline during excavation. The pipeline operator would also need to be called immediately in the event of such an emergency. No delay should be taken when contacting emergency services and the pipeline operator; even the slightest time delay makes an explosion much more likely.

To maximize safety, all excavators (whether working on natural gas lines or not) should create an emergency response plan that is specifically tailored to the site they are working on. They should also ensure that all the employees working at that site know the action plan in the event of a gas line or other utility line being punctured or any other hazardous incidence.

Would give more than 5 stars if I could! Super friendly, honest, knowledgeable and hard working! We had water line issues from our well - got us hooked up with a solution to get us water asap and then helped us to find a more long term solution being our well water was super nasty!! Gave us options and were not just “selling” to us, very honest and upfront - would definitely recommend and will use again!

They were very easy to work with. My hot water heater rusted out and flooded my basement. They arrived on time, did all of the work efficiently, and were happy to explain the new tankless water heater I decided to have installed. They did it all in one day, during a snow storm. Very happy with their service!

John helped us out tremendously! He was very honest and straight forward with us. He worked patiently with us as new home owners and took time to explain things when we didn’t understand! He was also very quick with working with various people on a project! 🙂
