USI was recently contracted by Riverside County Flood Control District to pothole and identify a 36” water line and 18” Sewer line in a 30” casing @ 10 locations. The pipelines crossed the Murrieta Creek Drainage Channel.
This project posed several challenges to complete, including pipeline depths in excess of 30 feet, accessibility issues, environmental issues, ground water issues, and not to be forgotten the turtle nesting season, which made digging these potholes a very interesting process.
USI crews self-preformed all the work which included a combination of a Track excavator and Vacuum Trucks to complete the potholes. The deeper holes had to be shored with hydraulic Jacks while our vacuum excavation crews completed the visual verification of the lines. The potholes in the middle of the creek where completed using the same combination of equipment. USI completed the job in two days, and provided report information, which was extremely critical for the upcoming channel remediation project.
