PLOWING


In larger, open, soft-surface spaces, utility conduit and cable can be installed by another means of trenchless construction known as cable plowing.  In this method of underground utility construction, a machine cuts a small slot in the surface of the ground and places conduit or cable into that slot as the equipment rolls forward along the lane established for installation.  This cable or conduit is placed on a reel mounted at the back of the machine and "force-fed" into the ground through the plowing process.  The slot that has been opened up is then back-filled and compacted showing very minimal disturbance to the site’s surface.
