Utility Trenching

Our residential and commercial properties benefit from a number of utilities that keep the day to day operations rolling. However, installing or replacing utilities into a new property can be a huge hassle with many things that can go wrong if not handled properly by an experienced contractor. Utility trenching is the process of digging and creating trenches for the purpose of transporting utilities, such as water, sewage, electricity, and oil long distances underground. The team at Greenbar Excavation has extensive experience excavating utility trenches for all purposes, from residential sewer lines to fiber optic cables for large scale commercial operations. A utility trench is only as good as the contractor installing it, do not waste your time with inexperienced contractors trying to spread themselves thin; come straight to Greenbar Excavation for a quality project!

Dry V.S. Wet Utilities

An expert excavation contractor understands the importance of distinguishing the type of utility being installed before completing any trench excavation. Wet utilities have to deal with liquids and water, these include utilities such as water supply, wastewater transport, sanitary lines and other utilities relating to water. When excavating for these types of underground utilities extra precautions must be taken to ensure that you do not deal with burst pipes or other problems down the line. Dry utilities have to deal with more power oriented services, such as electricity, fiber optics, and oil and gas. Some contractors only have experience working with one type of utility or another, it’s important to find a company that has expertise in handling all types of utility trench work for your residential or commercial property.

Pre-Screening

There is plenty of information that must be gathered before work begins on your utility trench. Our contractors will work to classify the soil, existing utilities, and identify hazards that may present a problem for your trench. Without this information gathering, your trench project could end up a disaster.
