Directional Drilling

Horizontal Directional Drilling

When water main lines and sanitary sewer force main lines need to be installed in areas not suitable to typical “open cut” installation, trenchless methods may be necessary.  Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) is a technology that has opened new doors in the field of utility construction, as well as minimizing environmental impact in sensitive areas.

Hendrix-Barnhill maintains and operates top of the line directional drilling equipment.  This technology also gives us the ability to install mains on projects requiring sub aqueous installation crossing rivers, creeks, etc.  We are also one of the only contractors in Eastern North Carolina that owns and operates it’s own reclaimer, giving us the ability to recycle our drilling fluids, further minimizing environmental impact by creating a “closed loop”.
