Preventing Damages During Horizontal Directional Drilling

The last Friday of each month I have been hosting a roundtable to discuss interesting topics in the world of damage prevention and utility protection.  It’s the kind of conversation we miss out on these days of travel restrictions.  This Wednesday, we are going to talk about preventing damages during HDD.

As more and more facilities are installed underground across North American and around the world, an increasing number of projects are using HDD to install everything from large diameter transmission pipelines to fiber optic cables. There are a number of risks associated with HDD installations and both facility operators as well as professional excavators need to find ways to prevent damage to existing buried facilities and keep crews installing the new lines safe. 

From cross-bores to cut fiber cables, HDD installations are a topic of conversations in damage prevention meetings somewhere in North America every day. Join our roundtable discussion to hear from stakeholders on all sides of the issue. Andrea Stainback from CenturyLink and the CGA Data Committee co-chair, Scott Brown from Washington Gas and the past CGA best practices Committee co-chair, will help lead the discussion along with professional excavators, on how we can all work together to change the trend of increased damages from HDD installations. 

Its like lunch with interesting people, without the enchiladas (or stain on my shirt).
