Dibco-CRS (a joint venture consisting of CRS Tunnelling and Dibco Underground) were the contractors and Hatch was the engineer on the Twinning of Etobicoke Creek Trunk Sanitary Sewer project.

As the federal government looks to pump more money into infrastructure improvements across the country, trenchless technologies are poised to play a pivotal role. Unfortunately, some methods are more utilized and recognized than others. In an effort to gauge where the different provinces stand in the use and acceptance of trenchless methods, Trenchless Technology Canada reached out to several leaders in the field across the country.
