WHAT IS HYDRO EXCAVATION?
Hydro Excavation is the next level of construction technology. It is the supreme method to use if you want to safely dig into the earth with complete confidence you will not damage or destroy costly pipes, cables, wiring, or other buried objects. The use of water, including hot water, prevents damage to buried utilities and works through frozen ground. Remote control technology provides safer digging conditions for workers, increasing productivity. The Hydro Excavation process also has a faster application translating into higher efficiency.

Oil & Gas
Hydro Excavation is the process of removing or moving soil with pressurized water. An air conveyance or vacuum is then used to transfer the soil or debris to a debris tank. This allows for a non-destructive and more accurate way to excavate soil and locate underground utilities.
Mandrel & Air Testing
“Mandrel testing” or “deflection testing” is used to determine that the ovality of flexible sewer pipe meets design specification. This testing is critical to the long-term performance of PVC sewer lines being installed today.
Closed circuit television inspection (CCTV) is one of the most effective methods to determine defects, likelihood of failure and rehabilitation needs. CCTV is the industry's tried and true method of determining the exact location and severity of all features and defects associated with your pipe system.
The purpose of smoke testing is to find potential points of inflow and infiltration in the public portion of the sanitary sewer system that could lead to high flows during storms and snow melt events.
Storm Drain Cleaning
A high-powered water jetting method may be used to clean out your storm drainage pipes, box culverts and lines. Depending on the source of the obstruction, leak, or clog, different techniques may be used.
