Pipeline Construction Companies

We are often asked, what is the difference between wet and dry pipeline construction companies? Pipeline construction companies can basically be separated into two (2) categories: dry and wet utility pipeline construction. Some pipeline companies do one or specific combinations of wet / dry pipeline construction. Dry utility pipeline construction companies install pipelines that are typically non-petroleum based, that do not hold liquid volumes inside the pipes.

In contrast, there are wet utility pipeline construction companies such as those that install sewer, water pipeline and storm drainage systems. These types of utilities carry liquid volume in the pipe, and are therefore called, "wet" utility pipelines for this reason. Next time you are looking for "pipeline construction companies," consider whether you need dry or wet utility pipeline contractors. Note, too, that oftentimes, they may be referred to as "underground" pipeline construction companies.

Sewer Maintenance

Sewer systems are sensitive creatures which are why maintaining them is so important. If sewer pipelines are not well maintained, they can cause foul odors throughout neighborhoods. This may be a good indication that sewers may be backing up. Sewer pipeline systems should be maintained regularly, cleaned as necessary or simply improved upon with newer and oftentimes larger diameter pipelines in order to withstand more usage, as new residential, commercial and industrial areas become developed.

Sewer pipeline maintenance and improvements will help avoid potential disasters such as those which may result in major "prohibited discharge" violations associated with the Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) . That is why it's imperative to have a functioning sewer system that runs as smooth as possible. This also means that preventive efforts need to be shared for both the home owner and the City or Sanitary District responsible for the sewer pipeline upkeep.

Water Pipeline

Water pipeline construction is an important component of underground pipeline utility construction. There are three main types of water pipeline systems typically installed in any new public or private construction project: domestic, fire and reclaimed water pipeline. As we all know, water is a precious resource that serves many functions and must meet stringent installation guidelines, and comply with other health and safety code regulations.

Domestic water pipeline is used inside your home, office or institution and is intended for consumption and contact with the body. This water has gone through a series of tests to ensure that it is safe for human consumption. It is also used for dishwashing, clothes washing and toilets on a regular basis. Construction pipeline companies carefully install these domestic water pipeline systems using several testing procedures; i.e. they test for leaks by conducting a pressure test and test for the absence of e-coli and other bacteria. Domestic water is brought from wells and reservoirs through water pipelines to the water agencies and then pumped to your community through local water pipeline mains. Water agencies continually test their water for purification.
