By Jeff Griffin, Senior Editor | May 2013, Vol. 68 No. 5

Clients include municipalities, sanitary sewer districts, government installations, universities and other educational institutions. Typically, projects range from 2,000 to 10,000 feet in diameters ranging from four to 48 inch pipe.

Root control technology has seen few changes over the years, said Hogan, but he believes the most significant advancement in the industry was development of Razorooter II.

“The diquat-based-herbicide provides many advantages over older, more limiting products,” he said.

Hogan said he believes experience is what sets Duke’s Root Control apart from others in the industry.

“Since the very beginning,” he continued, “from applicators in the field to our sales and support staff, we have fostered a commitment to quality and professionalism that I believe is unmatched. We ask our clients to evaluate our work after each project, and we consistently receive ‘excellent’ ratings.”

Hogan said increasingly more sewer system owners and operators recognize the importance of a regular preventative maintenance root-control programs, making the future is bright for the industry and Duke’s.

“We have served customers in 48 states.” Hogan said. “We now have interest from foreign markets we are currently pursuing. As always is the case, we will continue to provide the high standard of quality and professionalism that our clients have come to expect.”
