Cross Bore Inspection
Pinnacle Pipeline provides a comprehensive cross bore inspection program for utility owners — primarily natural gas energy providers — to eliminate the risks presented by new or replacement utility lines that are horizontally drilled through existing wastewater infrastructure. Gas line cross bore conflicts are especially dangerous as they can be easily breached during routine sewer cleaning, potentially resulting in an explosive situation.
Any trenchless replacement project presents a risk. Conflicts can exist between both mains and service connections for crossing lines. Older inspection efforts and poor record-keeping techniques have created a significant, national concern over public safety regarding utility lines installed using horizontal drilling methods that date back several decades.
Using a robotic camera, our skilled technician can view the line in real time and record the results for further analysis, while also providing an immediate assessment of your pipe’s condition. We meticulously examine defects and provide a comprehensive report on the condition of your pipeline per NASSCO standards.

Pinnacle Pipeline Inspection offers simple, affordable trenchless sewer pipe repair services that restore pipes to full integrity — without the disruptions and potential risks associated with traditional repair methods. We help municipalities handle sewer line repairs safely, efficiently and cost-effectively by eliminating the need to dig long trenches to access and replace old or damaged pipes.
Outdated pipe repair techniques come with a hefty price tag due to the amount of labor involved. By eliminating the time and labor costs associated with trench digging, today’s trenchless repair methods can save municipalities thousands of dollars on sewer pipe repair.
Cleaning improves the pipe’s carrying capacity, recovering its hydraulic efficiency
Extracting debris from the pipe facilitates the insertion of inspection tools
Cleaning is required before undertaking pipe rehab work, such as lining and repairs
Prevents sanitary sewer overflows (SSOs) which can cause property damage and threaten public health
When trying to locate fiber optic lines, cables and other utilities while avoiding the damage that can occur with traditional, mechanical digging, vacuum excavation is the safe solution. Pinnacle Pipeline Inspection uses high-pressure water or pressurized air to break up and cut the soil, while a high-flow vacuum system lifts the soil up and out of the excavation area. Vacuum excavation technicians quickly and efficiently uncover buried natural gas and petroleum pipelines and water mains with greatly reduced risk of damage to the infrastructure.
