Hydro Excavation

Hydro excavation removes soil with pressurized water and a vacuum. Soil is broken apart and removed to a debris tank on the truck.

Hydro Excavation, Potholing, or Day Lighting is a method locating of underground utilities using high powered vacuum equipment. Since it uses high-pressure water, vacuum excavation is the safest way to get a visual location of underground utilities without the use of digging or trenching equipment. Using a Hydro Excavator also causes very little surface disruption which means restoration is extremely fast and simple. Vacuum Excavation minimizes the risk of damaging underground services, which will cost time and money to repair!
