The excavator came back today to do the storm sewer trenching. Most houses have a pipe to connect to out at the street. But we're special, which translates into expensive. There is no pipe in front of our house. We have to tie-in to the back of a catch basin, which is in the next door neighbor's front yard.
The excavator had to rent a saw and drill that could break through the concrete back of the basin and make the connection. Since this was different then how most storm sewer connections are made, it was not in the original estimate, so this is an additional expense. It took them about two hours to get the trench dug behind the catch basin since it is near all the buried utility lines and had to be done carefully. One guy worked on the back of the catch basin. A second guy spray painted the layout of the storm sewer lines and where each downspout, along with the garage drain and sump pump line would tie in.
