Root Removal

Roots can intrude into any underground water conveyance or treatment system. Trees don’t know the difference between homes, businesses and nonprofit facilities. Their roots are attracted to consistent sources of water, and your pipelines fit the bill. You will find unwelcome roots inside of

  • Residential or commercial septic systems, where they can cause severe damage to pipes, leach fields and sanitary T-baffles
  • Municipal storm and sanitary sewer systems, where the intrusion sites can become major sources of unwanted damage
  • Institutional graywater distribution lines, where root balls can eventually cause disruptive, disgusting backups
  • Industrial holding pond pipelines, where excessive root growth can severely lessen the efficiency of designed flow
