We recently did a pipe bursting job on Military Rd in Arlington, VA. The customer didn’t want to cut down a very large tree, so we were able to replace the existing cast iron sewer that transitioned to orangeburg using a technique called pipe bursting. We opened up the floor inside, then dug down 10′ on the sewer where it met with the county main.
We burst a new sewer following the existing one. This meant we didn’t have to dig up the 50′ of yard, and were able to avoid cutting down the tree. Our customer now has a completely new sewer with minimal disturbance to his yard.
