If you are looking for a safe, effective and precise solution for moving dirt, hydro excavation is your answer. Less destructive than traditional excavation methods, soil can be moved without costly damage to root systems, utilities and other underground infrastructure. Whether you are needing to move ground or simply seeking to uncover what is beneath the ground, 4 Warriors Hydro Excavating can get the job done safely and efficiently.
The Hydro Excavation Process
Hydro excavation uses pressurized water and an industrial-strength vacuum process to loosen, move and remove soil. The work is completed via specialized trucks equipped with water and a high-powered vacuum mechanism. On the jobsite, a high-pressure stream of water from the truck is used to break up the soil. As it loosens, the soil and rock debris is vacuumed up into the debris holding tank within the truck, where it is stored for later transportation and disposal. A key benefit over traditional excavation, hydro excavation services can be done incrementally with delicate and precise movement that virtually eliminates the opportunity for collateral damage to underground infrastructure and tree roots.
Hydro Excavation Applications
Hydro excavation is used to address a number of industrial needs, including:
- excavating the ground without the potential hazards of utility damage or service interruption
- verifying the depth, size or type of existing underground utilities, a process sometimes referred to as “potholing”
- uncovering and exposing underground utilities and pipelines for necessary maintenance work or replacement, otherwise known as “day lighting”
- making circuitous or straight-line ditches, also known as hydro excavation trenching
