Advantages of Underground Utility Construction

Home / Advantages of Underground Utility Construction

These days, more and more attention is being paid to underground utility construction, even with apprehensions toward this type of utility placement. There are many reasons for this, but the main one may be that they are less visually and spatially intrusive than overhead transmission. However, even though there are some advantages that may be evident in theory, there are others that are not so obvious when you think about them. 

Here are a few of the benefits that have been identified by Federal EC, your expert in pipe rehabilitation in Atlanta, GA.

Reduced Operation and Maintenance Costs

When utility lines are left exposed to the open air, they corrode and wear away much faster. This, of course, leads to a greater need for repairs and costlier maintenance. When more utility structures are underground, this factor alone can help you save a lot of money over time. When underground utilities need to be repaired, cost-effective options such as CIPP pipe lining are available.

Effective Space Utilization

As cities grow more extensive and more populated, space becomes an increasingly valuable commodity. This means that if you can fit more infrastructure into the same area with underground utility lines, this would be a significant advantage. 

Repairs Made Easy

Another advantage of underground utilities is that rehabilitation methods are readily available as well. Pipe restoration techniques such as trenchless pipe lining is just as effective as the more traditional means of repairing pipes, with the added benefit of not having to disrupt the landscape above-ground.

Increases Curb Appeal

As mentioned before, overhead transmission lines can be a bit of an eyesore. When your property has underground utilities, you won’t encounter this type of drawback. In such instances, there won’t be a problem if you have landscaping services carried out or even plant flowers in the area immediately surrounding the underground utility, which in turn boosts your property’s curb appeal.

If your municipality is considering underground utilities, be sure to trust professionals like Federal EC. We also offer storm drain rehabilitation services.
