Environmental Works specializes in horizontal directional drilling (HDD) to provide our clients with a trenchless pipe installation method where standard “open trench” excavation just doesn’t make sense. Directional line boring allows us to reduce site restoration costs and ultimately save you money by boring and steering the drill under roads, driveways, retaining walls, landscaped yards, streams and other obstacles. The precise location and depth of the drill head is tracked with advanced locating electronics to guide and steer the bore path to a precise destination. This is especially important for pipe that must be installed on grade, such as sewer lines. Once the drill reaches its destination, we attach pipe or “product” to the drill head and pull it back underground to the starting point. We use industry leading Ditch Witch drills because they are built tough and are backed with great local customer support. That means jobs get done on time and on budget. If your project cannot be drilled due to extreme soil conditions, we will let you know and work with you quickly to find alternative solutions. Difficult or costly pipe projects are now possible with trenchless drilling technology!

Environmental Works provides a safe alternative to digging and excavating by using a powerful stream of pressurized water and a vacuum system to safely remove dirt and rock around sensitive underground utilities. This method is called hydro or vacuum excavation. By core drilling an access hole through concrete and asphalt surfaces and vacuum excavating “potholing” down to utilities, we can reduce the restoration costs and safely and precisely locate utilities prior to excavation or drilling activities. When shovel or machine excavation is just too risky or costly, hydro excavation is the solution!
