Hydro-Excavation

Hydro-Excavation is safe digging with high pressure water and vacuum, also known as soft digging, hydro vac, hydro trenching, safe digging, non destructive digging, potholing, day-lighting and vacuum excavation. The process is non destructive and can be used to excavate the following:

  • Energized Utility Lines
  • Gas Lines
  • Buried Fiber
  • Phone Lines
  • Water Lines
  • Sewer Lines

Hydro-Excavation is a non-mechanical and non-destructive process which combines pressurized water and a high flow of moving air to simultaneously excavate and e vacuate native soils at a controlled rate. The soil and water slurry are conveyed via an 8" vacuum tube to a truck-mounted debris tank. This process allows for quick, clean and precise excavations which require less backfill, less labor force, less restoration, less environmental impact than conventional digging methods, and most of all less overall project cost. A controlled flow water stream allows for surgeon-like accuracy removing only the material necessary for repair or inspection. Minimal material is removed when compared with the large, open cut excavation method.
