Sewer Pipeline

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.

Storm Drain Catch Basins

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.

Storm Drain Contractors

Storm drain contractors are involved with the installation process of subsurface pipes. These systems are necessary for redirecting water flow to reduce the risk of flooding in residential communities, along interstate systems, and surface areas such as parking lots and sidewalks.

Using the services of storm drain contractors is required with all types of pipeline construction jobs including municipal, institutional, industrial, commercial, and residential. Storm drainage systems are crucial for getting rid of storm water runoff that collects on ground surfaces and could result in flooding.

Storm drainage systems are comprised of catch basins and inlets that are strategically placed along curbs, roads, and sidewalks to redirect storm water runoff to subsurface pipes. These pipes transport excess water to an outfall opening so that water can be discharged into open bodies of water like rivers and oceans.

Subsurface Utility Engineering SUE

Subsurface utility engineering SUE refers to a practice that utilizes different types of tools to identify the location and condition of subsurface pipelines. Acquiring accurate data is essential for helping pipeline companies minimize jobsite dangers and work delays.

The process of subsurface utility engineering SUE was developed in early 90s and was primarily used by the Federal Highway Administration. Today, it is an industry standard utilized for nearly all types of pipeline construction including water pipes, sewer systems, and storm water drainage systems.
