In a rugged and rocky area south of downtown Atascardero, a leak was detected in a high pressure gas transmission line located on privately owned land. SoCalGas determined horizontal directional drilling (HDD) would be the best method for installation of a new steel pipeline to minimize environmental impact, reduce restoration costs and cause the least disruption for homeowners. Because it was considered a high level risk due to the potential hazard of an exposed transmission line and close proximity to a waterway, ABD worked quickly to engineer a plan and begin boring. The project was initiated and completed in two weeks.
