Western Utility Completes 24” Diameter Force Main Project

Western Utility recently completed the installation of a 1,200 LF 24”  Force Main via horizontal directional drilling method in University Park, IL.

The bore involved a multi reaming process using a Vermeer 100×120 drilling machine capable of 100,000-lbs of pull back force.  The project utilized the horizontal directional drilling method due to the right-of-way constraints and proximity to overhead utility lines.

“The complex project was completed on time and under budget,” Tim Hayes, president, stated. “We were happy to work with this client on such a successful project.”
