- Installing sewer and water laterals
- Retention/detention ponds
- Topsoil, fill, and aggregates
work consists of removing trees, topsoil, and excess dirt. It also includes grading of parking lots and
excavation requires the work of an excavator and grade person to remove the
ground to the proper elevations and to assure the foundation will fit within
the excavation. It is important to “over
dig” the width to allow room to poor the concrete footings, but not to “over
dig” to much to require more backfill. Also an “over dig” may be required vertically if there is unsuitable
soil which must be taken out and filled with proper fill materials.
fill is required when extra cuts are required due to unsuitable soil, or when
the grade is higher than existing conditions. When filling with granular materials a smooth drum compactor is used and
when using cohesive soils (clay) a sheep’s foot compactor is used. Lifts (usually 8”) are required to ensure
proper compaction throughout the entirety of the fill area.
Excavating, LLC works with experienced plumbers to ensure proper installation
of water and sewer laterals. Connecting
sewer and water consists of taping into the main, either in the road or
terrace, or connecting to existing lines. Also, we can install on site storm laterals which drain into on site detention
ponds are used to hold runoff water and slowly release them into the cities
storm laterals. New building codes
require retention/detention ponds to compensate for the loss of infiltration
due to impermeable surfaces such as asphalt or concrete.
