Directional drilling is a method that is used to install underground utilities, such as water lines, sewer lines, cable systems, and piping systems. A form of trenchless technology, directional drilling takes a utility from one point to another without disturbing the surface above or any obstacles that lie between the two points. The process involves using boring machines to drill a pilot hole into the ground at specified locations. The boring machine is outfitted with advanced technologies that allow it to change direction in the event that it comes across any underground obstructions. Once the pilot hole is in place, a new utility line, such as a water or sewer line, or piping system, is installed. The installation of the lines or pipes can then be completed underground.
At Long Island Sewer and Water Main, we’re experts at directional drilling. It’s our preferred method for conduit installation, such as underground water and sewer lines, as it allows for trenchless pipe installation.
Directional drilling offers several benefits that make it the preferred choice for water and sewer line installation among both the experts at Long Island Sewer and Water Main, as well as Long Island property owners. The following are some of the most notable advantages of directional drilling:
Faster installation. Drilling down into the ground rather than digging down and then across, like traditional open-and-cut methods require, means that the installation process goes a lot faster.
Less disruption. With directional drilling, there is minimal disruption, both to the ground and to obstacles, utilities, and objects that are located underground.
Affordability. Because the process is faster, directional drilling is more affordable than traditional methods.
Flexibility. This method can be used to place conduits in locations where obstacles are a problem; under a road, a driveway, a stream, or even in an area where piping needs to curve.
Less contamination. Since soil is brought to the side rather than to the surface, the risk of contamination is reduced.
Durability. The combination of more robust materials with greater placement accuracy allows for increased durability.
Fewer permits. Compared to traditional methods, directional drilling typically requires fewer permits.
