What is Horizontal Directional Drilling?

Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) is a minimal impact trenchless method of installing underground utilities such as pipe, conduit, or cables in a relatively shallow arc or radius along a prescribed underground path using a surface-launched drilling rig.

The process allows for a much cleaner, less destructive impact in the environment where utilities are required for installation.
