Pipe Ramming Through a Landfill
In November 2014, Brannan Construction Co. was asked to install a 36-in. steel casing beneath a BNSF rail line as part of a new 20-in. water line installation. The new 20-in. water line was being installed to replace an existing 20-in. water main that was not steel encased, and would not meet American Railway Engineering and Maintenance-of-Way Association (AREMA) standards for the new light rail lines being constructed.
