Virtually every construction contractor, municipality and utility does underground construction and/or has subsurface facilities. At times, a subcontractor with expertise or specialized equipment is needed to handle certain excavation jobs. There are many potential applications in which hydro-excavation is a viable option.
With hydro-excavation, buried natural gas and petroleum pipelines can be uncovered without risk of puncture. Fiber optic cables, telephone lines, water mains and other utilities can be efficiently located without damage. This method also causes less surface damage, traffic disruption and other potential digging drawbacks. Our operators can use hydro-excavators to dig with precision, offering a less invasive method for slot trenching, potholing or pipe location. In grassy areas, sod can be replaced and, within a week, a casual observer would never know a hole had been dug there.
