What is Hydro Excavation

Hydro Excavation is a digging process that uses one or more streams of high pressure/high volume water to dig into soil while at the same time using deep vacuum to remove the soil and water to a debris tank. Hydro-excavation & vacuum excavation are non-mechanical, non-destructive processes that use pressurized water and industrial strength vacuum to simultaneously excavate and evacuate soil. As hydro-excavation safely breaks up soil, the soil and water slurry is conveyed by vacuum to a debris tank. This method is preferred in undisturbed and cohesive soil scenarios. When water is not necessary to break up material, such as when applied to backfill areas with loose gravel or sand, the use of a powerful vacuum truck is all that is necessary. Southern HydroVac is a leading hydro excavation service in the Atlanta Metro Area

Is Hydro Excavation Eco-Friendly?

Hydro excavation is has low environmental impact and is significantly more versatile than traditional excavation methods commonly used. Hydro excavation is safe, green and easy whenever you require any kind of dirt removal or excavation services.

What are the benefits of Hydro Excavation

There are many benefits to hydro-excavations but the most predominant is SAFETY. It is less destructive compared to conventional methods resulting in fewer repairs to the surface area and less backfilling requirements. Manual digging is very intensive for laborers and very time consuming. Heavy machinery poses safety risks and causes damage to the surroundings.

The debris tank and water pump are both mounted on a truck that can be located near the jobsite or at a safer distance if the excavation site is in a heavily congested area. Hydro Excavation is much more precise than any other type of excavation; which in turn, saves time, money, and the environment. The risk of damage to underground utilities and adjacent soil is virtually eliminated. The surrounding environment is left with no damaging effects.

When is Hydro Excavation Best?

There are many situations that make hydro excavation a safe and cost effective alternative to traditional trenching. When you are dealing with utility lines, sewers or other underground structures, it is important that you do not damage those structures with traditional sharp-tool excavation equipment. Utilizing proper hydro excavation in place of traditional excavation methods is effective because it mitigates the opportunity to damage existing structures.

Hydro Excavation has many uses besides less intrusive digging and utility installation.
