Directional drilling is a method of installing underground systems like water, sewer, and gas lines. It’s a less disruptive form of drilling that allows technicians to place these required systems under the ground without causing damage to the earth’s surface or nearby buildings and structures.

In addition to being one of the the least invasive forms of drilling, directional drilling is also significantly more cost-effective than other methods, due to the fact that minimal restoration is required after the job is done.
While methods like open-cut trenching, the earth is dug up in order for technicians to lay their pipelines or other systems beneath the ground. This means that the soil must then be replaced, and landscaping must be re-done in order to return the area to its original state.

Plus, with open-cut trenching, technicians run the risk of cutting into current systems that are already beneath the surface.
With directional drilling, however, systems can be installed nearly anywhere, with less mess and in less time. Learn More

Some additional benefits of directional drilling include:

  • Increased safety due to less intensive operations
  • Reduced impact on the environment
  • Less groundwater contamination
  • Decreased damage to underground rock formations
  • Requires less extensive permitting
