Environmental Remediation deals with the removal of pollution or contaminants from environmental media such as soil, groundwater or sediment.
Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) can be much more effective in this process as opposed to conventional vertical drilling methods. HDD can be utilized in situations where vertical drilling methods cannot be used, such as tank farms, plant sites or environmentally sensitive areas.
Horizontal wells may be drilling under existing structures without any need to modify or move the structures. The slotted liners and pumps are placed in the horizontal holes and recovery of the contaminates may begin without any disruption to the site or their operations.
