What is Hydro Excavation?
Hydro Excavation is a non-mechanical and non-destructive process that allows pressurized water or a high flow of pressurized air to simultaneously excavate native soils at a controlled rate. This process allows for clean, efficient and accurate excavations which require less backfill, manpower, restoration, and environmental impact than conventional digging methods. A restricted water flow or pressurized air allows for flawless accuracy. When compared to the conventional backhoe or large excavator, a hydro excavator will remove only the material needed for the repair or inspection while reducing the amount of debris.
