What is hydro excavation?
When conventional excavation with bucket machines is unsafe or not possible, hydro exaction or hydro vac is the method of nondestructive excavation. A high pressured water system is used to break up the soil and the vacuum system is then able to suck up the debris. This technology allows for safe excavation around sensitive areas such as gas lines.
Situations for hydro excavation:
- Potholing for existing utilities to verify location and dimensions
- Dewatering, removal of water from job sites
- Manhole cleaning
- Bore and mud removal
- Excavation for signs or light poles
