Gordy Construction of Columbus GA hired Precision Blasting in April 2009 to help with their drilling and blasting needs for this large sewer project in Auburn AL.  The sewer line consisted of 17,775 linear feet of 24″ and 30″ pipe, and 4,805 feet of 10″ pipe.  Total footage for the job was 22,560 feet.  At one point, Precision Blasting had as many as three hydraulic drill rigs and eight employees working on the job.  The job required out of town stay, long hours, and some weekend work.  The sewer line also came in contact with Dixie Pipeline’s easement, a high pressured propane gas line on several occasions, and even crossed under gas lines.  Jeff Cole of Precision Blasting was in charge of all blast plans which had to be submitted to Dixie Pipeline for aproval.  With his expertise in not only blasting but blast design, we submitted blast plans that allowed us to blast up to 45′ from Dixie Pipeline’s high pressured (1440 PSI) propane gas line.  Precision Blasting completed all blasting operations, keeping Dixie’s officials satisfied with low seismic readings.
