The Duke’s family has been serving the underground industry with continued excellence since 1948. In 1979 we were tasked with developing a new way to control roots in sewers. With only a pickup truck and a small foaming machine, we set out to prove to municipalities that there was a better way. Years later and 300 million feet serviced and counting, the concept of treating roots as a maintenance practice instead of cutting has become a much more viable option. In fact, Dukes still treats many of the original lines and they are still considered assets by their owners.
The Duke’s Root Control team has grown considerably since its beginnings and now employs over 100 people that all have the same goal.
