Outside sump discharge piping re-routed to the city storm sewer


This residential client was required to re-route his sump pump discharge pipe from the backyard to the front yard where the city storm sewer is. This job had many obstacles to work around. First, near the street, is located the city storm sewer, a gas main, telephone pole, driveway, and the electronic fence for their dog! Also, complicating the job, is the neighbors property, lawn sprinklers, fence, trees, and landscaping!

All said and done, a 3 day, 3 man job, plus preliminary visits to discuss possible solutions, phone consultations with the city engineer as to where to connect our new pipe, and underground utility location services. Use of an Bobcat E35 excavator machine, and a Bobcat skid steer to smooth out the dirt.
