Testimonials

RJ Underground is a “Top Notch” Directional Drilling Contractor.  We have worked for RJ as a subcontractor and they have worked for us, more importantly we have worked together.  RJU is very safety conscious and also very productive.  They are willing to take on the tough projects without hitting owners up for excessive extra’s. It has been a pleasure to work with such a quality organization and we look forward to the next project.

I’ve been working with RJ Underground for the last 5 years on various Hospital projects.  Any time I’ve needed their help they’ve met me for a site visit or walk thru with little notice, attended meetings with the Owner to review scope and performed work with care and have always taken pride in their work.  I look forward to continuing on working with RJ Underground for years to come and would recommend them to anyone in the Midwest.

I am writing to you in regards to our experience with RJ Underground INC. on a recent Lake County Public Works project. 2006.061 Portwine Road Force main replacement.  The job entailed a difficult and potentially hazardous river crossing that could have caused drilling fluid release into the river. With proper project management and planning we were able to install the 24” HDPE in one fluid pull. Success is obtainable with the right partners in place. RJ Underground was that partner. Looking forward to working with them again.
Patrick Walsh, Lake County Department of Public Works
