About Healesville Directional Drilling
Directional Drilling is a very cost effective, environmentally friendly alternative to open trenching. The drill is surface mounted and requires minimal excavation. The pilot hole is tracked and the operator can constantly change direction to avoid any existing services such as water, gas pipes, electrical and communication infrastructure. The advantages of drilling are numerous, including but not limited to:
- Minimising the effect to the environment. Open trenching, even once filled, often sinks causing an uneven surface. Drilling leaves no evidence on the surface.
- There is minimum distruption to the public as there is often no need to close roads if drilling below the road surface. Opening roadways means the road has to be closed for substantial period.
- Work is not limited by depth constraints imposed when open trenching.
- Significant sites or assets can be bypassed such as culturally significant areas, creek beds, endangered or protected trees etc.
