Hydro Excavation for Daylighting, Debris Removal & More

You can excavate without damaging your underground utilities. Hydro excavation is a non-destructive method of digging up what’s below the surface, such as buried lines and pipelines. By using water to break up the earth and a vacuum to remove the mud, the hydrovac unit effectively eliminates the potential for utility strikes, damage to equipment, and ruptured pipes, which could lead to environmental disasters and hefty repair costs.
