  • Directional Drilling: Often referred to as “trenchless technology” utilizes special machines that install underground conduit with virtually no impact to the surface area,disruption to traffic flow,landscaping or structures. Conduit size typically ranges from 1″ poly or PVC to 12″. Larger diameter boring, rock boring or sleeving projects require larger equipment and are more involved to complete. Directional Drilling offers the best option for high traffic or sensitive areas without causing disruption to traffic flow, landscaping or structures. Once the crews clean up it will look like they were never there. Best utilized in residential and commercial zones.

  • Trenching: Trenching units vary in size and utilize a boom on the back that has cutting blades designed for specific soil or rock conditions. The trench travels along churning up the earth and creating a trench. Depending on what is being buried the trencher will create a open slit in the earth about 6″-12″ inches in width and a depth ranging from 24″ to 60″ depth. The crew will then “place” the cable or pipe and back filled the trench. This method of burial is best utilized in more rural areas such as along roads, through fields, and in new construction zones.

  • Vibratory Plow: Plowing units utilize a large vibratory plow that can pull and feed cable and/or conduit into the earth at depths of 24″ to 48″. The size and power of these machines makes it ideal for long runs of direct bury, where it can easily plow through soil, sand, clay and rocky conditions. This method of burial is best utilized in more rural areas such as along roads and open fields where underground utilities are not problematic.

  • Hydro Vacuum Excavation: Is a technology that uses water or air pressure to break up soil and debris so that it can be safely extracted by vacuum. This technology significantly reduces the risk of damage or injury while exposing buried utilities. Vacuum excavation is efficient and works very well in urban environments (by) mitigating risk of injury, damage and costly restoration.
