The Mission of the Great Lakes Trenchless Association is to enhance the skills and credibility of all trenchless constructors and underground construction professionals, develop and exchange industry knowledge, and to promote trenchless methods and underground construction and the understanding of its benefits.
WELCOME TO THE GREAT LAKES TRENCHLESS ASSOCIATION
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.
