Knowledge informs infrastructure projects
Vacuum excavation provides data such as utility size, depth, and material. The location of these utilities can be further surveyed for accurate easting, northing, and elevation.
The results of vacuum excavation provide engineers and planners with valuable information about the potential impacts of existing utilities on the alignments and associated costs of various infrastructure projects, including buildings, roadways, sidewalks and greenways, water and sewer pump stations, and other utility lines. Examples of our offerings include:
- Identification of Utility Size, Depth, and Material. WithersRavenel’s SUE professionals can help communities identify whether they have lead service lines through vacuum excavation. Lead service lines are a significant health risk, underscoring the importance of this technology.
- Verification of Utility Location in Three Dimensions. Knowing the precise location of underground utilities is particularly valuable whenever new infrastructure projects are being constructed. With our SUE team’s help, interrupted service can be a thing of the past.
Before starting your next infrastructure project, consider the value offered by our SUE professionals and their vacuum excavation services.
