Hydro and Utility Excavation

Hydro excavation is a precise and non-destructive approach for excavating soil and locating any utilities underground. It entails removing or moving soil using pressurized water. Hydro excavation is a replacement of the traditional digging meant for installing underground piping.

How Hydro Excavation Works

Hydro excavation equipment combines air vacuum with high-pressure water. The system thus cuts through the soil breaking it up. Afterward, the vacuum lifts the slurry from an excavation as it transfers the debris to a debris tank. A positive displacement blower or a fan system is used as a vacuum source. A fan system moves air in large volumes thus enabling faster excavations. When compared to positive displacement blowers, a fan system is easier to operate and cheaper.

Our hydro excavation services include:

  • Trenching & Excavating,
  • Locating Utilities
  • Potholing or Daylighting

Hydro excavation has a number of benefits such as:

  • Easing Penetration of Frozen Ground
  • Alleviating Traffic Disruptions
  • Minimizing Surface Damage to the Existing Utilities
  • Making it Easy to Reach Difficult Sites

When compared to other methods of daylighting, hydro excavation has always stood out as the most reliable. We go the extra mile and use hot water on cold areas with frozen soil that can barely be excavated using traditional methods.

Utility Excavation

Subsurface utilities and underground surfaces are crucial for construction. Excavation is required for laying these utilities. Utility excavation has a wide range of applications such as:

  • Pole Installation and Location
  • Sewer & Water Line Installation and Location
  • Septic systems Installation and Location
  • Daylighting
  • Potholing

Since utility excavation is a risky job, we minimize the chances of risks by using several distinct excavation applications. We also have a skilled team responsible for such projects.
