Sewer trenches & shoring

Sewer trenches are generally between 12-24 inches deep and wide enough that your pipe is accessible. Our team will ensure that the trenches are safe and shored correctly. Shoring is a technique that bolsters the sides of a trench to make certain they are sturdy and do not collapse. It is often necessary when a sewer line is near a road or existing structure. 

Shoring involves placing boards or other bracing such as struts against the excavation walls. Shoring is governed by specific regulations are our team is trained in keeping up to date with all local regulations. Shoring will also be planned around your soil type and existing landscape structures.
