HDD (Horizontal Directional Drilling)
Quam utilizes horizontal directional drilling to install water main infrastructures when other methods are not possible such as, for environmentally protected areas, shore approaches, roadways, and congested areas. This process allows Quam to install a pipe in a narrow arc through a drilling rig that produces minimal impact to the area. By using this technique, Quam provides less traffic and environment disruption, lowers costs, and reduces project completion times.
