Under A House

Problem: Client had to install two drip irrigation lines in order to drain their cistern onto their garden to comply with the Santa Fe City building code. However, the client did not own the land in front of their garage. So the only place they could install the line was underneath the house. It was too small of a job for a directional bore, and that would have been too costly.

Solution: We water probed underneath the house, jetted the hole wider, and then pulled the new pipes through.

Finding That Sewer Line Again

Problem: On November 25th 2013, Kiewit Construction had to drill in 6’ wide by 60’ deep concrete pillars to support a road off-ramp. There was a possible sewer line in the way. Before they could drill, they had to locate the sewer line which was believed to be at least 30’ deep.

Solution: First, we verified that the first ten feet had no utilities. We hit an old road bed, but proved that there was nothing in the way. So we had Kiewit bring in an excavator and dig a pit for us to work in. This made it easier to dig because we were closer to the sewer line. Then we vacuumed it out and verified the sewer line’s location. Then on May 21st, Kiewit lost the location of the line. We were called back to probe the ground with a 40’ water lance to re-verify the line’s location.

Solution: We vacuumed out the sand.
