Pipe Rehabilitation in Atlanta, GA

Our team approach, involving industry professionals, is a trusted resource for owners, vendors, and engineers. Take a look at some of our specialized services for pipeline rehabilitation.

Pipe rehabilitation is typically used at the end of a pipe’s lifecycle when the effects of corrosion and settling begin to accumulate after many years of service and repairs. This is important in restoring vital infrastructure and treatment facilities and avoiding flooding, sewer backups, and overflows.

Pipe rehabilitation often requires working near structures and in high-traffic areas where keeping traffic flow open is important. A pipe’s details can also be difficult to find if not indicated in public records, and the nature of defects can be difficult to ascertain without proper inspection and analysis. However, pipe detection and inspection methods such as CCTV (Closed Circuit Television) inspection, ground penetrating radar, and passive sound detection and camera inspection can help get the details required to identify deficiencies.   Trenchless rehabilitation techniques, such as cured in place pipe lining, pipe bursting, spin casting, coating, and slip lining, can allow restoration work to take place with a minimum of disruption.

Trenchless Pipe Lining

The need to cut pavement and trenches can create major disruption and cost. Trenchless techniques such as cured in place pipe, trenchless pipe lining in Atlanta, GA, bypass the need for extensive digging and present significant benefits in terms of money and time. Pipe lining typically includes a camera inspection to correctly identify problem areas and assess the overall condition.

Hydro jetting, a high-pressure jet of water, commonly follows to remove clogs from debris, buildup or tree roots and clean or descale the interior. If cleaning or spot repairs aren’t sufficient, an entirely new pipe liner or replacement may be required. Pipe lining can involve several processes and material types, including slip lining, cast in place concrete, spin casting, and CIPP pipe lining in Atlanta, GA.

Fold-and-formed liners are PE or PVC liners that arrive pre-folded to be winched into place and heated to reform in the shape of the existing interior. Slip-lined pipe, typically high-density PE, installs in segments that fuse together and are grouted into place. A common technique, however, is CIPP, or cured-in-place lining, which completely lines a pipe with a fabric tube impregnated with a thermosetting resin. Applied heat causes the tube to adhere to the interior where it cures and creates a tight fitting rigid and durable pipe within a pipe.

Storm Drain Rehabilitation

Aging or disrupted stormwater infrastructure can result in halted traffic, polluted waterways, flooding and road damage. Infrastructure restoration and storm drain rehabilitation in Atlanta, GA, uses various technologies. These can include CIPP, spincasting, tunneling, slip lining,  and shotcreting, which serves to restore lines and stabilize soil and structures. We also have access to spiral-wound PVC, which can be used for pipes that aren’t round and pipe installation in live-flows. CIPP, however, remains the industry-leading technique.

These trenchless techniques allow for efficient strengthening and rehabilitation of pipes in crowded areas and can be installed from locations above ground, causing a minimum of disruption.

Underground Utility Construction & Repair

Underground utilities form the belowground infrastructure for public services, including electricity, natural gas, cable tv and telecommunication, internet, traffic and street lights and water and wastewater. Underground utility construction in Atlanta, GA, is often necessary for functional or aesthetic reasons and convenience. Underground construction, however, can be risky due to unstable trenches, confined areas and the chance of electrocution. Consequently, municipal and government projects often rely on trenchless methods, including horizontal directional drilling and jack and bore to minimize disruption and lower costs.
