Horizontal directional drilling commonly referred to as HDD is a non-invasive trenchless technology. HDD allows the placement of underground utilities in limited-access, developed or restricted areas. Such areas include highways, freeways, parking lots, landscaped areas, streams and rivers or ravines. Because the method is non-invasive, restoration in these situations is greatly reduced, if not eliminated. This contributes to an environmentally safe project and can lead to project savings and enhanced public acceptance.
