            Use bore planning tools like Vermeer Projects software to stay organized.
Create a pothole at every utility cross point in your bore path using
soft excavation methods, such as vacuum excavation.
Make sure your drill head transmitter is calibrated and give yourself plenty of space between
other utilities as you drill.
Stay alert and watchful throughout excavation.
When inished, document and complete your bore plan for others to reference
in the future.
