Guess What This Is A Picture Of? A Telephone Pole Through A House Sewer

Sewer Repair

This Is What A House Sewer With A Telephone Pole Going Through It Looks Like.

Sewer repair on a sewer line needed before New Years Eve. When a utility contractor is hired to install new utility poles it is very difficult to determine where underground utilities are located. Even if utility companies are notified, as is the law, a house sewer frequently does not run straight and can be found in unexpected locations. In this particular case the house sewer location was directly underneath where the new utility pole was installed. A sewer repair was needed, and a complete sewer line was likely required to redirect the house sewer in question. Joseph L. Balkan Inc. was called to the scene to perform the sewer repair as soon as possible.
