Preston Pipelines is a full service general engineering contractor specializing in underground utilities from Modoc to Kern counties. Preston Pipelines can be reached at 408-262-1418.

Mr. Ormonde added: "The efficient, quick, and safe work by TRIC Tools and Quality 1st Plumbing allowed our project to finish on time and budget."

Quality 1st Plumbing has owned a TRIC Trenchless Pipebursting Lateral system since 2001. Bob Zamaroni of Quality 1st said: "TRIC's larger Municipal tools, the M50 and the M100, have opened up a world of opportunity for me."

Quality 1st Plumbing can be reached at (408) 968-1163.
