If it’s underground Balkan can fix it – main water line, sewer line, oil fill line, steam line, any line at any time. One of the things that Balkan prides itself on is working seamlessly with other tradesmen. So when a potential environmental issue arose in Manhattan concerning an underground oil fill Balkan was integral in solving the problem quickly, efficiently, and safely. When an underground oil fill line becomes defective it has the potential to leach oil into the ground, not only causing a loss of valuable heating oil but a potential environmental issue as well.

Working in conjunction with another licensed tradesman Balkan Sewer And Water Main Service completed all aspects of the underground repairs:

  • Securing required NYC DOT permit, which mandated weekend only work.
  • Complete break-out of the sidewalk affected by the damaged oil line.
  • Excavation exposing the entire line from the curb line into the building.
  • Complete installation of a new oil fill line including proper insulation.
  • Backfill and compaction of the excavation.
  • All debris removed from the site and left broom clean.
  • All work completed the same workday – with the sidewalk ready for pedestrian traffic Monday morning.
