Goal:  This Standard Team will create a new technical standard that provides criteria for projects employing horizontal directional drilling (HDD). The standard will include procedures and practices to minimize potential for inadvertent releases associated with HDD and to respond to releases when they do happen.

This team will examine existing research, consider new technologies, propose criteria, and consider input from expert and public review.

Anticipated Publication Date:  2020

Work Team Status:  We are currently taking applications for the SOC team for HDD.  To apply for this team, please complete the application hereNote the application deadline has been extended to midnight on September 3, 2019.

This team is expected to begin meeting in fall 2019. Meetings will be held approximately monthly until the standard is completed. More details on meetings, including agendas and meeting notes, will be available on this website as the work develops.
