Long-distance Grouting in Austin, Texas
Long-distance grouting of underground electrical conduits became a reality in summer 2006 with the completion of two 2,000-foot HDD installed conduits-in-casings by Mears Group Inc. in Austin, Texas. The casings run under the Austin Country Club Golf Course and Lake Austin. This project proved grouting could be accomplished over long distances. Grouting of underground casings previously had been limited to a few hundred feet.
