Brooklyn Plumbing Rocks

Brooklyn’s Rocky Underground

Geologists have known about New York City’s heavy underground rock conditions since the region’s earliest attempts to establish an infrastructure. Workers faced dozens of miles of bedrock while they built trenches for the underground railroad, subway lines, and water and sewage lines. Also, this Business Insider article describes how workers building the Brooklyn bridge had to work through the mud and rocks with their bare hands.

Brooklyn Still Rocks

Brooklyn’s own Balkan Team from the Sewer and Water Main Specialists of Joseph L. Balkan, Inc., recently completed an underground water line installation while encountering a large assortment of buried rocks. The Balkan team, well versed in the challenges that the geology of Brooklyn presents, effectively tackled and conquered this heavy rock condition. This Brooklyn plumbing company removed all the rocks, and installed a new water service line seamlessly. Balkan left the site as if it had never been disturbed. Seamless service includes next-day restoration of the roadway.
