Excavation has always been a messy business of digging dirt out of where we don’t want it. Typically we think of heavy equipment and piles of dirt, and anything that gets in the way is often damaged. Hydro excavation is not that way. There are no piles of loose dirt, no damage to utilities, and no possibility of blowing dust from this process, making the area cleaner and safer for everyone.
This process uses pressurized water to cut the soil away from the places we don’t want it, and a powerful vacuum to remove the slurry created by the digging process. It is a cleaner process all the way around, and the vacuum deposits the debris from the excavation into tanks for easy handling and disposal.
Hydro excavation is the safest method available for digging. A big reason for this is underground utilities. Even when you think you know where they are and which way they go, it seems heavy equipment has a knack for finding underground utilities. This is an expensive hazard as well as a dangerous one. It leads to loss of utility service in the area and can lead to personal injury or even death in extreme cases. Hydro excavation will uncover these lines without damaging them, which equates to a safer environment for everyone.
Another reason for using hydro excavation is it works in almost any soil condition. The water not only cuts the soil away but also acts as a lubricant in the digging process. This method can even excavate frozen ground because we can heat the water used in the process effectively melting the ice as we excavate the ground.
