This project involved the installation of 36” pipe; this wasn’t so much a challenge, but rather a unique aspect of the project. EV had to run buoyancy control throughout the pipe installation; therefore, the team ran calculations on the length and the volume of water as pipe footage was pulled.
The project took place in an environmentally sensitive area that was heavy with subsurface rock layers. Thus, geotechnical proved challenging and entry and exit pits were excavated using breakers and an excavator mounted rock hammer. Additionally, the subaqueous crossing length wouldn’t allow for the industry-standard radius. This posed a challenge, as EV had to pull the HDPE into a tighter radius than usually required. The project was completed on time and within budget.

As a national leader in the trenchless drilling industry, Earth View tailored our approach to specific demands of this major canal and completed the project accurately and efficiently.
Earth View used extreme diligence to ensure the nearby subsurface rock layers were not disturbed by construction.
