In civil engineering, it always becomes particularly challenging when obstacles arise. A body of water could be such an obstacle. If a sewer has to be routed under, through or over a body of water, expertise is required. Watercourse crossings are one of UHRIG's special fields of expertise. Get in touch and we will help you!

With respect for the environment

Water bodies are natural areas that need to be protected. This is ensured by the regulations on water protection. If sewers have to cross a body of water, sewer construction and thus civil engineering consequently becomes challenging. UHRIG has developed into a real specialist in the field of water crossings and places special emphasis on environmental protection. This means that the encroachment on the natural environment and the impact on animals and flora are kept as low as possible. To do so we resort to minimally invasive procedures or develop innovative approaches for individual cases.


Know how

First of all, dynamic tunnelling, in which pipes are driven horizontally through the ground underground, is an option for watercourse crossings. In addition, UHRIG is also a specialist company for the production of safety dams, large water reservoirs, water overpasses and all forms of necessary lowering of the groundwater in flowing waters. Experience combined with openness to new ideas make us experts who are not stopped by any obstacle – not even water. On the contrary: We rise to the challenge and show how environmentally friendly civil engineering works.
