Hydro excavation is a non-mechanical method of digging, which uses a high-pressure water jet to loosen the soil, then employs a high-speed vacuum to remove the dirt and debris from the hole. The machines that perform this type of work are known as Hydrovacs.
Hydrovacs are used to excavate in environmentally sensitive areas or wherever there may be a risk to damaging nearby underground utilities.
Hydrovac services are an excellent option for winter construction. Installed boilers generate hot water to break through the frozen ground. Hydrovacs are used for a multitude of applications in many industries, including general construction, utility installation & maintenance, electrical, telecommunications, chemical, and oil and gas.
