New York sewer work in Manhattan frequently poses many unusual issues. When a prominent midtown Manhattan building recently required a sewer repair, Balkan Sewer And Water Main Service was called to the scene and had to deal with many challenges.
Due to the size of the building and it’s corresponding need for other utility services, such as a full bank of electrical lines, all utilities had to be protected from damage. Balkan did this by first having all utility lines carefully marked out prior to starting excavation work. They then excavated by hand until all underground lines were exposed.
Accurate work orders
Due to scaffolding for other work being erected on the sidewalk Balkan had to ensure the exact location of the house sewer connection and that the problem was in the roadway. Balkan did this prior to excavating by using a specialty tool called a sewer sonde.
Flexible work hours and customer care
Due to the sewer repair being needed in midtown Manhattan all work was performed off-hours at night to avoid disruption to the neighborhood and the tenants. In addition all sewer excavation was performed by hand to avoid unnecessary damage and disruption to surrounding areas. In addition the client received timely job-site updates and status reports throughout the process.
There is a difference in sewer contractors
When Balkan exposed the sewer problem their original findings were found to be correct. The problem was in fact exactly in the location that had been marked out. The sewer repair was needed because an improper connection the the NYC sewer was made years ago by another sewer contractor and had collapsed. By working together with the NYC DEP a solution was reached that entailed purchasing a specialty fitting and having it over-nighted for a speedy resolution to the sewer repair issue.
