Being good stewards of the environment should be an important consideration for any company. According to Rehan and Knight (2007), trenchless construction methods can result in 78 to 100 percent lower greenhouse emissions than open-cut pipeline installation methods. A reduction in job duration coupled with less disruption to traffic flow is associated with the benefit.
Environmental Value Engineering (EVE) accounts environmental inputs, fuel energy inputs, goods, and services to the alternatives competing for similar resources. EVE was created, copyrighted, and developed by Dr. Wilfred H. Roudebush of Bowling Green State University, Bowling Green, Ohio showing that open-cut has 66.69% more impact on the environment than HDD.
How you plan on installing infrastructure can be just as important as what you’re installing. Choosing trenchless can increase positive perception of a project by decreasing both environment and public disruption.
