Directional Drill

The Avenue 60 Domestic Water Transmission Main Project is located in Thermal, CA. The completion of the pipeline required it to cross under a storm water channel with a high water table adjacent to it. Traditional methods of pipe installation proved to be expensive for they would have required extensive excavation, dewatering and shoring. Instead, horizontal directional drilling was evaluated by RCE as an alternative method of installation and ultimately used due to the cost savings.
