Hydro excavation is a non-destructive method of excavation using high pressure water to loosen the soil and a simultaneous vacuum to remove the spoils. Unlike backhoes, augers, and trenchers, this method virtually eliminates the risk of damaging buried pipelines, cables, utilities, and other underground structures while digging. In addition, this equipment offers diversity through multiple applications and environments.
Hydro excavation can be especially useful for:
- Municipal Utilities
- Plants and Refineries
- Sub-surface Utility Engineering
- Commercial Construction
- Storage Tanks
- Electrical Utilities
- Farm and Ranch
- Public Works
- Road Construction
