What is Hydro Excavation?

The process of Hydro Excavation, the only non-destructive method of digging, utilizes pressurized water and a vacuum system to quickly and safely expose underground infrastructure. During the hydrovac process, pressurized water is injected into the ground through a handheld wand.

How It Works?

Hydro-Excavation is a process high pressure water is used to loosen soil, rocks, clay, gravel and other earth material while it is contiually "sucked up" into a debris tank for later disposal.


Advancements in Hydro-Excavation since its inception have made it the de facto standard for providing a non-destructive means to safely locate utilities and precisely excavate an area. The process is widely regarded and highly valued for being safe and effective.

Hydrovac can do these tasks:

  • Hydro Excavation
  • Cleaning Manholes
  • Basin Cleaning
  • Steaming & Thawing
  • Slot Trenching
  • Utility Day Lighting
