Auger Boring Is Ideal For A Wide Range Of Soil Conditions
Auger boring is a trenchless technology method used to install steel casing pipe in a variety of soil conditions. These conditions can range from dry sand to clay or soft rock. With the proper cutting head, auger boring can be used for solid rock formations.
The auger boring process, as with all trenchless drilling, reduces the likelihood of ground settlement because the steel casing pipe is inserted into the hole as it is excavated. This makes auger boring useful for installing utilities under railroad tracks, roads and levies where settlement is a concern.
The Advantages of Auger Boring
- Used in a variety of soil conditions where minimal settlement is critical.
- Can be used for pipes from 12 inches to 48 inches.
- The pipe supports the ground around the excavation during the boring process.
- Spoils are removed by the continuous auger action back to the work pit.
- Auger boring is a dry method, producing no slurry.
- Goes under surface obstructions such as buildings, roads and railroads.
- The work area is confined to the starting and ending pits.
- Auger boring is a quick method and in many cases has lower overall costs.
Wide Range Of Applications
Auger boring is typically used to create crossings for water, sewage, oil, gas, electricity, chemicals, communication ducts and outfalls. Typical auger boring projects are from 30 feet to 300 feet, but the distance can be greater. The longest auger boring project on record was over 800 feet in length.
Typical casing pipe for auger boring is made of steel to stand up to the rotating auger. The carrier pipe installed inside the casing can be any material suitable for the product going through the pipe.Request A Quote

Clearpath was very professional in their operations and service to Buckeye Water District. The employees were very professional and informative throughout the job. What we liked about working with ClearPath was their professional workmanship and how quickly the job was completed.
Clearpath performed a very difficult project for us (boring at extreme angle, through rock, in adverse conditions). When issues arose in the field they worked diligently to find a solution so as not to delay the project. They got the job done on time, always kept me informed on the progress. Very Professional.
Just an awesome group of guys both in Management and the field. Love working with ClearPath. In this industry it comes down to people and service. ClearPath excels in both aspects. Our company and ClearPath have an excellent working relationship. Couldn't have asked for better guys on the ground. The cooperation, communication, and performance is what we have come to consider the norm for ClearPath but exceeds others we work with.
Clearpath is our go to contractor for boring. They are great to work with and provide exceptional service. From initial communication to the finished product, Clearpaths employees are always willing to work with Efficient's employees in whatever way possible to get the job done. The ClearPath team is truly viewed as a partner with Efficient Pipeline. They have assisted us on small road and creek bores to larger complex HDD's. The knowledge in both design and execution is above industry standard.
