A good pipeline contractor is hard to come by especially because there is no trade school to become a pipeline project manager or superintendent. The only way to really learn pipeline construction is to work directly for pipeline construction companies. In some cases, there is no formal in-house training offered and new employees simply go out in the field and learn hands-on from their associates. Pipeline contractors may have had decades of field experience, learning the company's culture along the way, to get the basics. However, some things just tend to get missed when lacking formal training.
To solve this problem, Kana Pipeline developed its own in-house pipeline contractor training program for its future Superintendents and Project Managers - those who are directly involved with contract work.

Fireline refers to a type of water pipe system that is used to extinguish fires. Underground pipes attach to fire hydrants or fire suppression systems and deliver pressurized water at an accelerated speed.
Fireline is installed by pipeline contractors. The process is similar to other types of water pipe and entails excavating the land, preparing trenches, laying pipe, and attaching components.

Water pipe is used to convey drinking water, reclaimed water, and fire suppression water. Without them, communities would not have access to vital services and would be forced to utilize wells and water holding tanks.
Potable water pipe provides people with fresh water for drinking, showering, washing clothes, and other vital tasks. Fireline water pipes are needed to provide fire departments with sufficient water to extinguish fires in residential communities and business parks.

A concrete storm drain structure is rather nondescript in appearance, but serves an important duty. The bulk of these structures are primarily hidden underground or protected by embankments. Visible parts include curb inlets and street gutters which are positioned along sidewalks and roadways.
Areas without a concrete storm drain structure are often plagued by flooding any time it rains. Storm drains are designed to pull excess water into the system by means of gravity. City streets and parking lots are built with slight elevation so water will naturally flow into systems.

Storm water drain construction plays a vital role in public safety. Storm drains are needed to manage water flow that occurs after rain or snow storms. Water is transported swiftly through a series of underground pipes so that is does not accumulate on ground surfaces and result in flooding.
Storm water drain construction is performed by licensed contractors who have been trained in Environmental Protection Agency wastewater management practices. The EPA monitors all types of pipeline that release water into American waters.

Sewer pipeline is probably one of the oldest types of pipeline systems in existence. Usage of this type of pipeline has been traced back to thousands of centuries. Archaeological excavations have unearthed many such systems made of orange colored clay such as that of timeless pottery pieces. Today, this same orange colored clay pipe material is still the most commonly used for sewage related pipeline construction. This is because of its ability to withstand disintegration from strong acids such as those in harsh chemicals and other liquid pollutants that would otherwise eat through any other type of pipe material.
Originally, these sewer pipe systems were used to irrigate crops using gravity-fed water from local rivers. Not all pipes were cast in a circular shape. In fact, some pipes were cast into a square shapes, with the top part of the pipe open and exposed. These pipes were used to carry away human waste product.

Subsurface Utility Engineering (S.U.E.) is in a nutshell, vacuum utility potholing and private utility locating. S.U.E. tasks essentially involve pre-design investigative processes of vertical and horizontal locations under the ground. These processes allow topside investigation of existing utilities in order to verify whether a proposed new utility or utility pipeline installation in that area would be feasible.
Many consider S.U.E. to be the damage prevention solution to consulting engineers. S.U.E. helps ensure that there are no underground utility conflicts once plans are approved and underground pipeline construction has begun. As the saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. So goes S.U.E., in preventing underground utility conflicts in the design and preconstruction phase of any new construction project.

Concrete storm drain construction is a specialty field that necessitates learning specific skill sets. This type of work involves the understanding and reading of civil plans, and then installing these underground pipeline systems that eliminate storm water runoff.
Concrete storm drain construction offers a variety of job opportunities ranging from administrative duties to field work. Although many positions require a college degree, there are jobs for high school graduates as well.

Did you know that storm drain chambers can process millions of gallons of water per day? It's hard to believe these compact half-domed plastic pipe halves can convey so much water volume, but they can.
It's a good thing storm drain chambers are so efficient. Otherwise, people would spend a good part of their day dealing with flooding every time it rained or snow began to melt. Instead, civil engineers developed systems that can effectively and efficiently make good use of excess water through a series of these unique underground pipes.

Did you know storm drain catch basins have been in use since ancient times? Long ago, early civilizations used drainage systems to collect water for their crops prior to dry seasons, as well as to safeguard crops from flooding during rainy seasons.
Although storm drain catch basins have evolved and are no longer used for crop irrigation, they are still used to protect communities against flooding. Without these drainage systems cities and towns would be underwater or constantly dealing with flood management.
