Hydro Excavation

Diamond Hydrovac Truck with boom extendedHydrovac excavation trucks consists of very powerful air vacuum and a high-pressure water device. The operator uses a large extendable wand to shoot the High- pressure water at the soil or earth that is to be removed to loosen it so that the high-pressure vacuum can suck the debris up into the 15-yard capacity (405 Cubic feet) tank so that it can be removed off site and delivered to one of the certified dump sites where the slurry is recycled.

Hydro excavation is the safe alternative to traditional “destructive excavation” when an accurate excavation is required to locate underground utilities and underground items.

Hydro excavation is less dangerous to workers and environmentally friendly.
