Hydro excavation is a safe, non-destructive method of soil removal from around an excavation site. Pressurized water is used to break up the soil around an underground pipe, while an industrial vacuum removes the soil into a tank mounted on a hydrovac truck. The material can then be dumped back out of the truck.
This method of excavation allows for greater control and accuracy when removing soil from around underground utilities. It can lessen the possibility of damage caused by more traditional methods of excavation, and can be used on any job large or small. Even on frozen or even dry compacted ground.
Other common uses of Hydro excavation include: Daylighting, Debris Removal, Piling Holes, Pole Holes, and Slot Trenching.
