Lately, with California laws pertaining to metering of residential water and further discovery of leaking waterlines, we are doing more of that sort of work………and are happy to do so. Its a nice break from concrete for us. Below is a job crossing a 25 year old mature lawn. We found a balance between keeping the lawn perfect cost prohibitive
versus just ripping everything out

This one was kind of tough because the waterline was leaking so bad it filled up the trench as we were excavating it…the pump couldn’t keep up with it.
So we ended up running a Bypass waterline above ground to facilitate proper grading of trench, Additionally, it kept water service “on” for the client.
