If you are potholing to locate utilities or beginning excavation for new construction the most environmentally friendly, safe way to do this is hydro excavating. Any large movement of soil in today’s highly industrialized environment can produce problems. The ability of hydro excavation methods to establish access for a necessary facility and waste management connections without major disruption of surrounding construction or cross contamination offers the safest, most economical, and efficient method for this phase of any construction.
Hydro excavating unlike other methods of soil removal, does not require the removal of large amounts of topsoil to either locate existing utilities or establish new access. According to Wikipedia,”Suction excavators eliminate the need for costly and time-consuming manual labor. Buried pipe systems do not suffer damage. The output is up to sixteen times of what’s typically achieved by conventional excavation.” The use of high pressure heated water in conjunction with an industrial vacuum allows for a more precise dig of either trenches or holes.
This also eliminates the need for removal of large amounts of soil and debris. This effectively cuts down on the amount of cross-contamination and the disturbance of groundwater making this method more environmentally responsible. It also creates a safer work environment for construction crews who must cross the area.
