Hydro Excavation, the only non-destructive, environmentally safe method of digging utilizes pressurized water and a vacuum system to quickly and safely expose underground infrastructure.
During the hydrovac process pressurized water is injected into the ground through a handheld wand. As the soil cover is liquefied, the resulting slurry is simultaneously extracted by a powerful vacuum and stored in a debris tank, and disposed of offsite.
Hydrovac can dig effectively in all soil types, including clay or high plastic materials. With the aid of on board boilers, Hydrovac provide a safe means of digging in frozen ground.
