Trenching Services


C&E can do all phases of your irrigation project. We work with all the different contractors so that you only have to work with one! For irrigation projects, we trench and install main lines, irrigation pipes and sprinkler systems for orchards and vineyards. We install water mains and pressure mains. We routinely work with our local irrigation businesses to facilitate circle installations. Together we make sure projects are installed correctly and timely. We also install ponds and pumping stations for each customer’s unique situation.

Wire/Cable Plowing

When only a small wire is needed in the ground, many times we will use our wire plowing machine rather than dig a trench. Wire plowing works great where ground water is a concern. Wire plowing also ensures that your wire is accurately placed. This machine is able to quickly and efficiently plow in electric wire for swing span corner wire. We also set up and install the wire for center pivots. We’re able to plow in many types of utility wire including cable, electric, communication and phone. We also plow in pipe when the job requires.

Drains, Wastewater, Sewer

C&E Trenching can install anything underground. We take care of evaluating and suggesting solutions for proper drainage, wastewater ponds, sewer drain fields and septic systems. We are licensed to install and repair septic systems in Benton and Franklin Counties. When the underground work is completed correctly, it provides a strong foundation for everything that takes place above ground. We install large commercial on-site septic systems and force sewer main lines.

From Six Inches to Five Feet

Our trenching capability is extensive! We offer many different sizes of trenching widths from 6 inches to 5 feet! This flexibility means a minimum impact on your ground area, which means less of your crops are damaged. When we only trench out what is necessary, we are able to get in and quickly complete your project, allowing you to get back to farming sooner.

Since 1994.

Frequent Questions

Here are some frequently asked questions we receive. If you have more questions, see all frequent questions below, or contact us.

View All FAQ's

What payment types do you accept?

We accept cash, check, Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.  We would also consider letting you do the dishes! (Just kidding!)

Do you do excavation for houses?

Generally speaking, no.  If your project requires a large amount of dirt moving such as a basement or a larger than normal driveway, we would be interested in talking to you to see if we are a good fit.

What area do you service?

We actively search out work in about a 1-hour radius from Pasco.  It is very important to us that our team be able to be home most nights with their families.  On occasion, for a long-term customer or for one of our specialized services, we will go beyond this radius.  An example would be to install a perimeter wire for a center pivot irrigation system.

Can I get a ball park quote on a septic and drain field?

Sure! We will need to know how many bedrooms your house will be, the area it is in and what type of system will be required for the lot (ie gravity, pressure distribution, engineered or mound). With that information, we can give you a ball park quote. Just remember that ball parks are big so it won’t be 100% accurate!

Are you doing any residential sprinkler system trenching?

Unfortunately, No. Our equipment is too large for most yards. We would refer you to a landscape company for that kind of work.
