At East Coast Underground we make seeing your underground utilities easy and accurate with our Hydrovac Excavator. Hydrovac Excavation, using a hydro vacuum is a much easier and safer alternative to digging in any situation where you are removing ground and need to locate before you dig. We can effectively remove materials around manholes, tanks, sewers, pipelines, utility lines, conduits or alongside the buildings where conventional excavation is high risk or destructive. In many cases, conventional methods for soil removal with a large excavator, or even a small backhoe, is impractical or even unsafe. The project may call for exposing pipelines or other utilities, or perhaps the soil to be removed is in a very tight space that does not allow for large equipment to be utilized, or maybe there are just too many unknowns beneath the ground surface. For those circumstances, East Coast Underground provides safe, pinpoint excavation services for a variety of purposes.
Hydrovac Excavation, which is also referred to as “hydro excavation” and “daylighting,” is a safe method of surgical excavation that uses both high-pressure water to break up soil and a powerful vacuum to perform the excavation. When applicable, hydro excavation greatly enhances workplace safety and excavation efficiency.
Over the past few years hydrovac excavation has gained rapid popularity as a complement to conventional methods or as a stand alone method used for digging and moving soil.
There are many benefits to hydro-excavations but the most predominant is SAFETY. Plus, it’s 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.
Industries commonly served by Hydrovac Excavation: utility companies, pipelines, large pit exposure, power plants, remote digging in manufacturing plants, municipal public works, railroad facilities, environmental engineering and consulting firms and general contractors/construction companies.
