Municipal Sewer & Water Service Programs
We welcome sewer repair requests from cities, counties and towns in Alberta
Clogged sewers and blockages are a hazard for homeowners and municipalities alike. Our trenchless approach offers minimal disruption to property and shorter interruption of water flow. We also provide a 100 percent accurate quote and project duration estimate before the project begins!
We can perform most of the repair or replacement process without interrupting water flow and service. We only turn off the water during the actual pipe replacement step of the process, which means the system will not be without water for more than approximately 2 hours. Trenchless sewer repair also prevents damage to property (such as lawns, landscaping, sidewalks and roads) because it requires a minimal amount of digging to prepare the pipe for the repair or replacement process.
Trenchless sewer repair is a cost-effective option for municipal projects, because our installation is priced per metre. Your project rates are based only on specific water mains or sewer mains that need replacement or repair.
Trenchless sewer repair causes less traffic disruption on roadways or pedestrian traffic on sidewalks, because it does not require operating over the entire length of pipe.
With traditional methods of repair, you will often have to deal with the disruption caused by cutting up pavement, excavating a trench, removing dirt and debris, and longer construction times that will cause delays around the property (e.g. closed walkways, road detours, traffic congestion, etc.).
Trenchless repair can be conducted from within a confined area, leaving roads and walkways open—so business can go on as usual.
Often, sewer pipe failures do not require a full-scale replacement—only on rare occasions do pipes systematically deteriorate along their full length.
In fact, pipe conditions are usually related to localized problems that result from poor design, manufacturing, or installation. They can also be caused by external factors, such as environmental, operational, or maintenance issues.
However, few of these failures require a costly and unnecessary total repair or replacement to extend the pipe’s useful life. By identifying and repairing only the isolated areas that need restoration, municipal projects can realize large capital savings over the large-scale replacement or rehabilitation of these pipes.
