If you’re wondering what hydro excavation is, then you’re in the right place. Hydro excavation is used for digging trenches and ditches deep enough to expose sewers, pipelines, or anything else located underground. Hydro excavation is also known as high-vacuum excavation – a combination of high-speed water pressure and vacuum suction.
High-vacuum excavation has been demonstrated as a viable technology for many years. It has been used for thousands of feet on drilling rigs for cleanouts, mud sweeps, and other industrial applications. Many companies are starting to use this technology to remove oil, grease and hydrocarbons from around storage tanks.
