The Plastics Pipe Institute has published new guidelines in Technical Report TR-46 for the placement of flexible high-density polyethylene (HDPE) pipe using mini-horizontal directional drilling techniques. TR-46 provides detailed information regarding site and bore-path planning, pipe design, drilling procedures, inspection and testing of mini-HDD installed HDPE pipe. Mini-HDD is a popular method that enables the rapid underground installation of HDPE pipe for water, gas and utility cables for runs of less than 600 feet, at depths of up to 15 feet and bore holes of up to 12 inches in diameter with minimal disruption to the surrounding site.
