In order to prevent catastrophic injury and interruptions of service, electricity must be handled safely. Contractors have learned to set aside certain excavation methods in lieu of others. Hydro Excavation is a preferred excavation method around buried, electrical lines.
It involves training pressurized water in designated areas. The force of the water safely dislodges any movable materials that may be burying the electric lines in question. As such, the wires are less apt to be compromised and consequently cause harm.
Safe working environments are not the only benefits gained from choosing hydro excavation. Many construction managers find the excavation method to be one of the most cost-effective and eco-friendly around. It is a preferred choice for several reasons. For one, it eliminates water run-off and waste. Accordingly, supply costs tend to be lower than other excavation methods overall.
At 4 Warriors Hydro Excavating, we’ve been excavating throughout Texas for years now and would love to share our hydro excavation experience with those in need. We’ve found that in addition to electrical location projects, it’s an excellent clearing method for other projects too.
