Hydro Excavation

Hydro Excavation

Our hydro excavation service presents a safer and more precise approach to uncovering sensitive hidden obstructions for key underground infrastructure. Each project requires highly trained personnel and a well-thought-out process as high-pressure water cuts through the soil precisely, eliminating the need for a backhoe.

Traditional manual digging with heavy machinery often results in operator accidents (shovel strikes) and damaged underground utilities. Hydro excavation is safer and a non-destructive alternative that requires less backfill with far superior results. Our hydro excavation trucks along with our trained operators utilizing vacuum excavation techniques will safely dig and remove soil with minimal disruptions and damage to underground infrastructure.

Hydro excavation is a more precise solution for the following situations:

  • Slot Trenches
  • Locating Utilities
  • Potholing
  • Debris Removal
  • Pole Setting
  • Daylighting
  • Pipelines
  • Pipe & Sewer Rehabilitation

Our hydro excavation techniques in removing soil is an effective alternative that is operator control through precise use of water and air vacuum. The advantages of hydro exaction are that it is cost-effective, eliminates the need for heavy machinery, and minimizes impact on hidden underground utilities or infrastructure.
