Storm Water Drain Construction

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.

S.U.E.

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.

Sewer Main Contractors

Sewer main contractors perform a myriad of jobs related to private and public sewer systems. Due to the fact that sewer pipes can cause substantial damage if improperly installed or accidentally damaged, contractors undergo substantial training prior to working at construction sites.

Any time a person hires sewer main contractors they need to make certain that contractors are licensed, certified, and hold required work permits and insurance coverage. Additionally, it's important to work with experienced contractors that are familiar with the specific type of installation processes.

Wet Utility Contractors

Wet utility contractors are involved with many jobs related to subsurface pipeline. In addition to installing new sewer and water pipes and storm drainage systems, contractors also repair or remove pipes; prepare worksites for demolition work; and restore jobsites once pipeline work is completed.

Wet utility contractors also are involved with installation and repair of municipal water treatment systems, steel tanks, and pre-cast pump houses along with updating deteriorating freshwater pipelines.

Sewer Construction

Sewer construction refers to the various procedures involved with installing sewer pipelines. Since sewers transport contaminated waste, the design and installation of pipes must abide by EPA guidelines.

Sewer construction can be associated with most new types of construction projects. Systems and installation procedures will vary depending on whether projects are residential, commercial, or municipal.

Pipeline Construction Contractors

Pipeline construction contractors are responsible for installing, repairing, and replacing pipelines used to convey water, fuel, and petroleum-based products. Contractors are also charged with maintaining utility pipelines used to protect fiber optic cables and phone lines, along with sewer pipes and storm water drainage systems.

Pipeline construction contractors
handle most facets of the construction process including trenching, pipe installation, backfilling, paving, and land restoration. Contractors are also in charge of managing the process of applying protective coatings to pipes in order to prevent corrosion.

Pipeline Contractors

Pipeline contractors utilize a variety of techniques to install subsurface pipeline systems. The type of pipes used depends upon the construction project. Gas and oil pipelines are entirely different than sewer and water pipelines, although installation processes are sometimes similar.

Pipeline contractors oversee the installation of new pipelines from start to finish. Once a design is provided, subsurface utility engineering is used to locate existing utilities and pipelines. Afterward, the land is prepared by removing rocks, boulders, shrubbery, trees, and other types of landscaping or building materials.

Pipeline Construction

Pipeline construction is an integral process that involves pre-construction planning, the actual construction phase, and post-construction. Each phase requires a dedicated team of highly trained employees including engineers, construction workers, general contractors, and project managers.

The planning phase of pipeline construction involves working with engineers to design the system. Multiple decisions must be made to ensure the project will not have negative impacts on the environment or community. The pipeline project planning team will need to acquire permits, secure easement rights, meet local, state, and federal requirements, and obtain project proposals from various pipeline construction companies.

Subsurface Utility Engineering Companies

Subsurface utility engineering (SUE) companies are in charge of duties associated with utility design and potholing, mapping, locating, coordination, and condition assessment. SUE allows contractors to locate existing subsurface utilities and avoid pipeline utility conflicts.

Working with subsurface utility engineering companies, such as Kana Pipeline, can reduce project costs and minimize delays. Companies that utilize SUE technology have access to a variety of detection tools to provide accurate underground information.

SUE is a process that allows the SUE companies to utilize multiple tools and technologies throughout the designating and locating portion of a project. At Kana, we utilize ground-penetrating radar, vacuum excavation, and multiple frequency pipe and cable locate systems.

Storm Drainage System

Reduce Pollutants into American Waters

A storm drainage system is a complex unit that requires careful engineering by a civil engineer and proper installation by a licensed pipeline construction company. Drainage systems are an essential element in all facets of construction including residential, commercial, industrial, and municipal projects.

A storm drainage system includes a series of pipelines and related structures that carry storm water to the point of release. This system reduces environmental impact, such as flooding, that could result in land erosion and property damage. Storm water that accumulates from buildings, roads, and parking lots is gathered into the drainage system and transported through water pipeline until it can be deposited into retention ponds, lakes, rivers, and the ocean, or detention ponds positioned in low-lying areas.

Pipeline Companies

Pipeline companies are the driving force behind the installation and maintenance of pipeline networks that crisscross the country. Americans rely on pipelines to provide fuel for their homes and automobiles; have uninterrupted telephone and cable services; acquire fresh water for drinking and bathing; and for sanitary hygiene provided by indoor plumbing.

Pipeline companies install pipes and utility systems in several venues ranging from residential to municipal. Projects can consist of water pipelines, sewer pipelines, fireline, storm drainage systems, communications and electrical conduit systems, natural gas pipelines, or petroleum pipelines used to transfer gas and oil to refineries.

Subsurface Utility Engineering

Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE) is a process that has been known to save potentially thousands of dollars in underground pipeline design simply by addressing wet and dry pipeline utility conflicts well in advance of any subsurface utility installation. Subsurface utility engineering is necessary in the design phase when planning, for example, a construction project that requires new or upgraded sewer, water pipeline, or storm drainage systems.

Subsurface utility engineering encompasses many different engineering activities. According to the standard for SUE, developed in 2003 by The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Standard Guideline for the Collection and Depiction of Subsurface Utility Data, Subsurface Utility Engineering is defined as a branch of engineering practice that involves managing certain risks associated with: utility mapping at appropriate quality levels, utility coordination, utility relocation design and coordination, utility condition assessment, communication of utility data to concerned parties, utility relocation cost estimates, implementation of utility accommodation policies, and utility design.
