What We Provide:
ABC Soils can help you conduct your water main inspections. Water mains sometimes need to be inspected for long term maintenance, and we can uncover them quickly and safely with our vacuum excavation trucks, without any risk to the water main or any other nearby utilities. To make your project simple, we can handle a range of potential responsibilities, including:
- Traffic management and pedestrian safety
- Sawcutting and jackhammering
- Trench safety and shoring
- Sidewalk panel replacement and asphalt patching
Example: MWRA Water Mains, Medford, MA
ABC Soils assisted the MWRA with a water main inspection at number of various locations around the city of Medford, MA. Prior to commencing work, we prepared and submitted traffic management plans to the city traffic engineer for approval. After taking necessary measures for safety and legal compliance, we sawcut pavement in the street, excavated down to locate a 36-inch water main, and provided shoring for an inspector to enter and inspect the pipe. Upon completion of the inspection, we backfilled the hole, poured concrete as required, and paved with hot mix asphalt. Work was completed within the estimated time and scope of the project.
