What is Hydro-Excavation?
Numerous terms are associated with this activity: potholing, daylighting, hydro-trenching, hydrovacing and non-destructive excavating to name a few. Simply put, hydro-excavation is the process of utilizing high-pressure water and a powerful vacuum system to excavate. A high pressure water stream loosens the earth and other debris while simultaneously removing and storing the slurry within the onboard vacuum system. This precision orientated activity is predominately used to expose underground infrastructure while determining/proving its precise location OR its non-existence within a proposed excavation area. All in a safe, non-destructive fashion. Examples of underground infrastructure include oil and gas pipelines, water pipelines, sewer pipelines, fiber optic cables, and power and television cables just to name a few.
