Hydrovac trucks use high pressure water to cut and liquify soil, while simultaneously using high volume vacuum to remove the soil from the excavation. Both fresh water and soil from the excavation are contained in the truck mounted unity.

Hydrovac Services We Provide

Soil Trenching

A non-destructive excavation technique that utilizes pressurized water and a powerful vacuum system to safely expose underground utilities and infrastructure for inspection, repair, or installation purposes.

Debris Removal

Entails using pressurized water and a powerful vacuum system to swiftly and effectively extract debris, soil, and other unwanted materials from excavation sites or underground infrastructure, maintaining cleanliness and safety standards.


Employs pressurized water and a robust vacuum system to safely expose underground utilities and infrastructure for inspection, repair, or installation, without causing damage to surrounding structures.

Common Questions About Hydrovac

1. How does hydro excavation work, and what are the benefits compared to traditional excavation methods?

Hydro excavation, also known as hydrovac or vacuum excavation, uses pressurized water and a powerful vacuum system to break up soil and debris, which is then suctioned into a debris tank. This method allows for precise excavation without causing damage to underground utilities or infrastructure. The benefits of hydro excavation include increased safety, reduced risk of damage to buried utilities, faster excavation times, and minimal disruption to surrounding areas.

2. What safety measures do you have in place to ensure the protection of underground utilities and infrastructure during the excavation process?

Hydrovac operators implement several safety measures to protect underground utilities and infrastructure. These include using non-destructive hydro excavation methods, utilizing utility locating technology to identify buried utilities before excavation, maintaining a safe distance from known utilities, and following strict protocols for excavation around sensitive areas. Additionally, operators undergo comprehensive training to ensure compliance with safety regulations and minimize the risk of accidents.

3. Can you accommodate projects in tight or confined spaces, and what equipment do you use for precision excavation?

Yes, hydrovac trucks are versatile and can accommodate projects in tight or confined spaces. They are equipped with flexible hoses and extendable booms that allow for precise excavation in challenging environments. In addition to hydro excavation capabilities, some trucks may also be equipped with air excavation systems for even greater precision in delicate or hard-to-reach areas.

4. What is your process for disposing of the excavated material, and do you adhere to environmental regulations?

Excavated material from hydro excavation projects is transported to sites approved for the disposal of soil and debris. Our Hydrovac operators adhere to environmental regulations governing the disposal of waste materials to minimize environmental impact. Additionally, our operators will take will recycle or reuse excavated materials whenever possible to reduce waste.
