Water & Sewer

Water & Sewer

Over 80% of households, schools, and businesses rely on water infrastructure installed with trenchless construction. By 2032, the demand for North America’s water and sewer infrastructure is expected to grow by over 25%, while existing underground networks installed outside of the modern era will fail at an even higher rate. Akkerman has worked with customers for nearly five decades to meet the equipment demands required for accurate line and grade sensitive water and sewer installations.
