Sinkhole repair saves money, disruption

A leaking sewer line and storm water main drain caused a sinkhole in a high traffic area at the busy Port of Palm Beach. A traditional excavation to repair the pipes, fill the voids and replace the asphalt was an expensive and highly disruptive option that port officials hoped to avoid. Seawall Doctors of Boca Raton, Fla., seal the leaks, filled the voids and lifted the asphalt with two different Prime Resins polyurethanes, saving the client $40,000 and days of disruption. While lifting asphalt is not generally recommended because it is too soft and flexible, in this case it was a good solution that worked well for the property owner. Read the full case study.
