Indepth were tasked with the installation of a 300mm diameter foul ductile iron pipe set on galvanised steel piles driven at a depth of approximately 7metres into the ground beside Crimple Beck in the village of Spofforth, North Yorkshire.
The scheme was challenging due to the presence of Himalayan Balsam in the working area on the verge of flowering. Indepth carried out the removal of these plants following environmental guidelines.
