Directional Drilling or HDD is used to install communication and power
cable conduits, water lines, forced sewer lines and gas lines. LEW, Inc.'s highly
skilled employees have installed thousands of feet of pipe. Our HDD capabilities
have enabled us to protect landscapes and yards, roads and highways from being
destroyed and protect wetlands, woodlands, creeks, and lakes from being disturbed.
Not only is it safer for the environment, HDD also causes less traffic disruptions
and it can be very cost effective compared to traditional open-cut methods.
major purpose of the directional drilling section of this website is to educate
engineers, contractors, developers, municipalities, the State Department of Transportation
personnel and utility companies. Engineers and construction professionals alike
will identify this site as a useful research tool in finding information for writing
and designing specifications for projects.
Directional Drilling (HDD) is commonly referred to as a trenchless technology.
We do not open cut the ground. When it is in operation underneath the ground surface,
we cannot see it in operation. Therefore, it is difficult to understand the process
or how it works. Our goal is to help you understand how it works, so that you
can become familiar and comfortable with the process.
