What is Horizontal Directional Drilling?

Horizontal Directional Drilling is a new and innovative way to install underground utility lines. This method is efficient and simple. It involves drilling underground and pushing in threaded rods from a small entrance pit to an exit pit.

From there, the utility line is attached to the drilling rod and pulled from the exit pit back into the entrance pit. Minimal excavation required!

Benefits of a

Trenchless Approach


Because trenchless drilling only requires 2 small pits, there are no open trenches. That means your site is secure with far less chance of any incidents.

Less Restoration

Our solutions will preserve lawns, driveways, roads, buildings, and more, meaning you don’t have to worry about restoring the mess left from excavating.

More Efficient

Our process is 2-3X more efficient than traditional excavating services. Inspections are also faster, so your project can move forward without delays.


Not only is digging slower and messier, it’s also more expensive, especially when restoration costs are factored in. Our process is more cost-effective.

Better Results

With our services, your line is more secure. No foreign materials are being pressed upon your newly installed or replaced line during backfill.


Do you have a house, road, lawn, etc in the way of your new utility line? No problem. Our innovative technology can go under almost any structure.

We have asked CTS to drill some of the most technical, and challenging shots, with minimal tolerances, a nightmare for most companies, and yet they have never once disappointed or let us down. It is extremely evident they take pride in what they do. Their professionalism and attention to detail sets the standard in the industry. Rest assured if you need anything directionally drilled CTS is who you want doing it."

Companies We Work With

There’s a Better Way

Our unique and foolproof process means you get the results you didn’t even know were possible. We take the stress and headache out of your line replacement or installation, so you can focus on one thing: moving your project along.

Once the lines are located, our process only takes a day (sometimes only half a day), depending on the scope of your project.


Locating Primary & Secondary Lines: before we start ANY project, we always locate underground lines, so you can rest assured that our drilling won’t cause any damage to existing underground infrastructure.


Site Visit: we come out to your site to confirm the plan for your project and address any changes that might occur if a line is in the way.


Dig Small Pits on Either End of Drill Site: our pits are only 1.5 X 1.5 feet, meaning there’s virtually no damage to your lawn or site.


Underground Inspection: this is a quick 30-minute inspection to ensure the lines are at a safe and proper depth.


Tie-in Your Line: our gas fitters or electricians will tie in your lines wherever they need to go (shops, detached garages, garden suites, etc).


Back-Fill of Pits: once the final inspection is complete, we fill in both pits. And that’s it: simple, effective, and clean.
