Dredging 

Drains and Developments use dredging when unblocking large water race around roads and farm lands.  Again experienced operators will access the work because this work is done partly underwater to remove bottom sediments and disposal of the waste recovered. 

Grading  

Soil gradation is an import aspect of soil mechanics and geotechnical engineering because it is an indicator of other soil properties such as compressibility, shear strength and hydraulic conductivity.  Grading soil will often control the ground water drainage of a site.  Drains and Developments will drill a serious of test holes and have the ground checked by GMF test

Drilling

Commonly called horizontal directional drilling or HDD, It is a steerable trenchless method of installing underground pipes, conduits and cables in a shallow arc along a path by using a surface launched drilling rig, with gives minimal impact on the surrounding surface area.  Directional drilling is used when trenching or excavating is not practical. Ie as in under a existing building.
