Event Registration - Multiple Methods of Irrigation Installation
Tuesday, November 03, 2020
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM Eastern Standard Time
Irrigation installation job sites are becoming more and more complex. Underground rights-of-way are congested with underground utilities, and yards are increasingly populated with potential landscape, hardscape or environmental hazards. One installation method that contractors are turning to is vacuum excavation. As a low impact and flexible option, vacuum excavators are becoming increasingly popular in urban job sites. When pairing vacuum excavation with traditional installation methods like trenching and excavating, contractors can take on more jobs and increase profitability. Vacuum excavation and traditional installation methods complement each other and should be mutually beneficial. Vacuum excavators are not there to replace trenchers and excavators but to supplement where traditional methods can't go. This webinar is worth one CEU in the Tier 1 - Irrigation Training category.
