What Are Cross Bores?
Pneumatic boring is a blind process. But it doesn't have to be.
· Pneumatic boring offers a variety of advantages. It's a cost-effective, minimally disruptive method for installing utility lines. It also saves time and makes financial sense.
· However, locating utilities while standing above ground provides a limited picture. Pneumatic boring remains a blind process, resulting in dangerous cross bores.
· Cross bores could lead to property damage, disrupted communication, or even human injury.
