Directional Drilling

Directional drilling is a minimal impact method of installing underground utility services such as water pipe, sewer pipe, electrical conduit, cables, or any type of underground utility that previously required digging a trench. Whether it is a pond, building, highway, or stream, using one of our three sizes of directional drills we are able to install utilities underneath almost any obstruction without disturbance.

Excavation / Hydro Excavation

For small excavation projects we have you covered! Using a combination of our Komatsu PC35MR, Cat Skid Steer and Hydro Excavation rig, we are prepared for most small jobs. Our hydro excavation equipment combines high-pressure water and an air vacuum. This system cuts through the dirt while the vacuum sucks up the debris. This technology allows us to excavate around trees and underground utilities without risk of damage.

  • Emergency Pipe Repair

Pipe Bursting

Pipe bursting is a revolutionary method of trenchless replacement of failed sewer lines which requires much less mess than traditional excavation. Bursting involves putting a cable into the existing pipe and pulling a cutting head through to break up the old pipe while simultaneously installing a new pipe. Not only does bursting cost less than traditional excavation it is also much faster than trenching and only requires a small entry and exit hole to be excavated.

  • Expand pipeline carrying capacity
  • Minimal need for manual excavation
  • Cheaper than trenching methods
  • Common applications include sewer line replacement under roads, landscaping and structures.

Private Utility Locating

When planning underground work public utility locates only cover the utility up to the meter.  Water lines, sewer lines, and some electrical lines will not be marked.  We have private utility locating equipment to help avoid unwanted damage to utilities.   If ignored, you run the risk of overwhelming your budget and stretching your timeline. 

  • Reduces costs
  • Ensures accuracy
  • Promotes Safety
  • As a private utility locator, we are able to find buried pipes, conduit, wires and lines that 811 won't mark.
