Whether they’re residential or commercial, our water lines are literally our sources of life. There are so many reasons that water pipes need to be replaced, from municipal water pipe line systems to factory and neighborhood water systems. NJ Trench can handle them all. Water pipes can sometimes be positioned incorrectly, laid in the wrong soil type or an improper type of fill is placed around. All of these factors lead to a risk of the line bursting. That can not only be very costly to replace but obviously creates a serious issue for anyone relying on that water. Did you know that some older cities still contain water pipelines from the early part of the 20th century? Some of these are actually made out of wood and the risks there are pretty clear even to the untrained professional. We are committed to understanding the needs of your project. Managing water lines well is crucial and we’ll get the foundation of all of your water pipeline project on track the right way.

A water supply network or water supply system is a complicated network that links water from a source or drainage basin to your commercial or residential property. The parts of this system are the origin source or site of the water, the pipes to the water purification facility, the pipes from the water purification facility to the water storage facility, and from the water storage facility to the water main that distributes to your business or homes. We are fully qualified and experienced professionals in dealing with all of the complicated parts of these systems.


As experts in the trenching, ditch digging and excavation for each of the parts of this system, we understand the needs of large water users such as cities and the uses of smaller consumers of water such as a neighborhood development or a commercial business like a factory. We work closely with the water bureau and the water companies to ensure that your next project goes smoothly for the design of the system, the depth of the system and the implementation of the task of digging the trench to hold that systems. We understand water distribution networks and what the perimeters are that govern the positioning and depth.

To begin a new project or renovation, it is crucial that the sewer lines are in properly placed and buried to insure they function correctly for the building and people they serve. We are experts at excavating digging the ditches your project needs to connect your structure to the sewer main line. We have worked with both major contractors and with government entities to get trenches dug the right way, efficiently and quickly so your project can get underway.

NJ Trench excavatingWhen digging sewer line ditches two things are most important. First is the location of the sewage main line. Second is capacity of the pipes being installed in the ditch we’re digging. Sewer lines are not something that cities or businesses want to dig up routinely and we will work with engineers and cities to make sure that we can get the job done superbly from the beginning. We are competent at both digging ditches for new installations and at digging up old sewage lines that are in need of repair or replacement.

Another major concern is making sure that ditches are positioned with the proper regulations and city guidelines. Sewer lines have to be a particular distance from the main structure. Sewer line trenches also have to be dug out in a way so that the sewage pipes to be installed will be the proper distance from the water lines per each city’s guidelines. Given that many cities require a 1/8’’ per foot slope we are competent at making sure that we can adhere to these rules. One would assume that digging a ditch is just that, but there is quite a bit more involved in doing the job properly for each project and we are confident that we are the right team to make sure that all of these stipulations are followed precisely.

Storm drains have a variety of purposes but generally their primary function is to remove large amounts of water from the surface of streets, parking lots or other impervious surfaces roads, making the roads last much longer. The range of storm drains covers the basics of minor residential dry wells to massive municipal infrastructures. These drains then lead to either a combined sewer, which is where storm water and sewage are mixed together, or connects to a water source or treatment system.
In either case we are able to work with your city or other businesses to identify the correct positioning and locations of pipers so that new or replacement drain ditches can be dug out in the proper place.

storm-drain1There are three main portions of a storm drain and we dig the ditches for all parts of these crucial infrastructure systems. The first part is called the inlet. The inlet is the portion of the system and can either be a side inlet that is located on the curb or an inlet that is in the street itself and has grating across it. The street inlet is not very common in the United States. The inlet is just where storm water will enter the system just as the name implies.

The second part of the system which we will dig out for you is the piping which will connect the inlet with the outlet. Pipes can come in an array of shapes that can include oval, round, pear shaped, rectangular and many other shapes. These often have multiple options that go beyond a straight pipe. These options can include traps for catching debris, waterfalls and stairways.
The final part of the storm water drainage system is the outlet. The outlet is often a large opening at the end of piping that will have some sort of grating over it. This can lead to a pond, lake, man-made basin or retention pool. Whether the water needs to be channeled into an outlet that already or exists or needs to be created we will dig the trench efficiently and accurately.
