Inflow and Infiltration Trenchless Repair
This new video highlights three projects where the URETEK polymer injection process is used to trenchlessly seal and repair lateral lines and manholes from inflow and infiltration (I/I). The application is quick and cost-effective and provides effective I/I mitigation.
Foundation Damage Caused By Melting Snow and Ice
The winter of 2015 will go down in the history books as one of the snowiest. In fact, as of March 15, 2015, Boston had accumulated a total of 108.6 inches of snow. This was the most amount of snowfall since the city started tracking weather back in 1872. It has also been a brutally cold winter across the entire Northeast. Once again, Boston broke records, averaging only 16.1 degrees in February.
After a long season of shoveling, snow blowing and digging out the car in order to go anywhere, warmer weather is a welcome signal that spring is almost here. Experts predict that this spring’s runoff from melting snow and ice will be the worst we’ve had in the last 15 years. Unfortunately, melting snow and ice can cause damage to houses and other buildings and may uncover some unwelcome cracks in the foundation. As a…
FDOT Makes Emergency Call to URETEK to Repair Storm Drainage Pipe
When the pavement began to collapse and surface depressions began to appear along the pavement’s shoulder on Shoreline and Hoffman Drive in Gulf Breeze, Florida, the Florida Department of Transportation put in an emergency call to URETEK to inject geotechnical polymer using the URETEK Method.
The video footage from a camera inserted into the storm drainage pipe showed that faulty joints at multiple locations was creating voids under the right-of-way, which was causing the pavement to collapse and surface depressions.
