Open Channel Utility Construction
Wastewater systems are usually designed as open channels except where lift stations are required to overcome topographic barriers. The driving force for open-channel flow is gravity. Leath & Sons installs gravity sewer lines, force mains, lift stations, manholes, storm water drainage systems, and collection and pumping systems.
The collection and movement of surface drainage and waste flows from commercial areas pose problems of a different nature from those for water supply. Waste must be transported from the point of collection to the treatment or disposal area as quickly as possible to prevent the development of septic conditions.
Leath & Sons offers commercial customers proven excellence in a wide scope of excavation services, including earthmoving, underground utility construction, and design/build field operations. Our employees bring unparalleled enthusiasm and skill to each and every project.
Roads and highways are at the core of the services Leath & Sons provides for the Kansas City area.
