When working on construction projects, Water Services uses a variety of equipment, such as barricades, flashers, trailers and ground thaw units (which thaw the ground frost before excavation work). Examples of these pieces of equipment can be seen below.
When performing construction work, we place and utilize equipment strategically. We take into consideration factors of safety, accessibility, amount of people affected and length of equipment use during the project - all for the purpose of using space efficiency. We realize that some equipment may cause a temporary inconvenience, but to save time and money, equipment is stored on site. We appreciate your patience during the construction period.
