Code-Compliant Trenching Services for Water, Storm, Sewer, Electrical, and Telecommunications Lines, and Building Foundations, Footings, and Retaining Walls

We offer the best value in trenching services throughout Merced, San Joaquin, and Stanislaus Counties. Whether you need trenches for electrical lines at your new home site in Modesto, sewer lines for an industrial building in Ceres, or gas lines for a county building complex in Oakdale, you can trust AAA Backhoe to get the job done on time, in budget, and in compliance with all relevant building codes and OSHA safety requirements.

Our utility trenching service usually involves digging the trench, installing the conduit, putting in the utility vaults, and hooking up lines from county or city utilities to the building's outdoor power panel. For gas lines, the gas company completes the final hookups. Trenching can also be done to relocate or add new lines for water, storm, and sewer. We can also complete joint trenching to efficiently stack multiple utilities in a single trench. After all work has been completed to your 100% satisfaction, we will arrange for it to be inspected and close the trench. We also offer affordably-priced construction trenching for footings, retaining walls, and foundations for residential and commercial buildings.

Thank you for your help and prompt service. Ladies in the office were knowlegable and friendly. Guys came out and pumped it and suggested new leech line. Got a great quote and had it done quick. I would use them again.
