Frequently Asked Questions

What Does Deep Utilities Installation Involve?

Deep utilities installation refers to the process of installing and maintaining the infrastructure that supports water management, sewage, and stormwater systems beneath the ground. These services are crucial for the development and functionality of residential subdivisions, multi-family homes, industrial areas, and commercial sites. The process typically involves:

  • Site Grading: Preparing the land for construction by leveling or shaping its surface.
  • Road Works: Constructing roads to provide access to and within the development.
  • Stormwater Management Facilities: Implementing systems to manage and treat rainwater runoff to prevent flooding and erosion.
  • Sanitary Lift Stations: Installing systems to pump sewage from lower to higher elevations for proper treatment.
  • Potable Water Pumping & Metering Stations: Ensuring the distribution of clean water and measuring its flow within the network.

Why is Offsite Servicing and Distribution Facilities Important for New Developments?

Offsite servicing and distribution facilities are critical components of infrastructure development for new residential, industrial, and commercial projects. They ensure that developments are fully integrated into the existing municipal infrastructure, facilitating:

  • Accessibility to Utilities: Extending water, sewage, and electrical services from main lines to the development site.
  • Environmental Compliance: Meeting regulatory requirements for stormwater management and wastewater treatment.
  • Sustainable Development: Providing the necessary infrastructure for future growth and development in an environmentally responsible manner.

These facilities are not just about connecting to current utilities but are essential for planning future expansion and ensuring that developments are sustainable and resilient against environmental challenges.

  • Design and Construction: Developing stormwater management systems that can efficiently collect, store, and treat runoff water. This can include ponds, green roofs, permeable pavements, and other innovative solutions.
  • Regulatory Compliance: Ensuring all stormwater management practices meet or exceed local, state, and federal regulations to protect the environment and public health.
  • Maintenance and Upgrades: Providing ongoing maintenance services to ensure that stormwater facilities continue to function effectively and making upgrades as needed to accommodate new regulations or to improve system performance.
