Pipe Installation

Pipe Installation

Heavy reinforced concrete pipe is being hoisted here using an excavator and chain and will be installed as part of a new storm drainage system.

Manhole Cone

Manhole Cone

This storm drain manhole has a built-in-place or poured-in-place manhole square shaft. Above this is a manhole cone, called a "cone" for its uneven, angled side that lends itself to a smaller opening at the top or entrance of the

Drainage Junction Box

Drainage Junction Box

This is a storm drainage junction box that was formed with concrete that was poured-in-place. This was necessary to connect an intersection of three separate bodies of drainage pipeline.

Large Concrete Pipe

Large Concrete Pipe

Shown here is a storm drain pipeline being installed piece by piece. All storm drainage pipeline systems are to be laid at an angle that allows fluid to drain by flow of gravity and not under a pressurized system, such

Pipe Concrete

Here is a look at a straight reinforced pipeline structure. This pipeline will be grouted over with concrete at the outer and inners seams to prevent water and dirt intrusion. Afterwards, this pipeline structure will be ready for backfill and

Radius Pipe Inside

Radius Pipe Inside

This is what the inside of a reinforced concrete pipeline looks like. The "R" stands for "radius" is incorrect. The "R" actually stands for the pipe manufacturers initials. Also, the term radius is used loosely and is not technically accurate.

Concrete Pipe

Concrete Pipe

Shown here is a straight reinforced concrete pipeline which is curving by using radius pipe connections.

Radius Pipe

Radius Pipe

Shown here is another angle of a storm drain concrete pipeline structure. At an intersection of another pipeline, there is a wooden structure being prepared to form a junction box that will "join" or "intersect" two pipeline bodies. The term

Radius Pipeline

Radius Pipeline

Here is one angle shown of a radius concrete pipeline. This is called "radius" because each pipe piece is not uniform; it varies slightly to accommodate a curve structure to allow this concrete pipeline to "bend" as necessary for storm

Sewer Pipe

Sewer Pipe

Thousands of linear feet of this 20' deep 8"PVC sewer pipe are being installed, together with marking tape above the pipeline so that this pipeline can be detected in future for utility locating and other underground service alert functions.

Compaction Wheel

Compaction Wheel

Kana Pipeline excavator is compacting dirt with the aid of a compaction wheel attachment to complete the pipeline installation process. After pipe is installed, it is not only backfilled, but compacted to 90% or 95% to ensure no potholes are

Stormceptor System

Stormceptor System

The stormceptor system is part of a critical process in maintaining water quality. This drainage system will help remove total suspended solids (TSS) and free oil from storm water run-off and will not scour or re-suspend trapped pollutants.
