What is Hydro Excavation?

Also known as vacuum excavation or hydrovac, is a digging method that combines high-pressure water and powerful suction to remove soil and debris safely. It is a non-destructive and precise excavation method widely recognized for its safety and efficiency.

Unlike traditional digging methods that rely on manual labour or heavy machinery, utilizes pressurized water to break up the soil, which is then simultaneously removed by a powerful vacuum system. This allows for a controlled and precise excavation process that minimizes the risk of damaging underground utilities or other sensitive structures.

The Benefits

Hydro excavation offers numerous advantages over traditional digging methods. Let’s explore some of the key benefits:

  1. Safety: Safety is our top priority at IVIS Inc. Hydro excavation eliminates the risks associated with traditional digging methods, such as accidental utility strikes or cave-ins. By using pressurized water and suction, our highly trained operators can safely expose underground utilities, pipes, and cables without causing any damage.
  2. Precision: Hydro excavation provides unmatched precision when it comes to digging. The pressurized water stream can be precisely directed to remove only the required soil, leaving surrounding areas intact. This level of precision is especially crucial when working in congested urban areas or near critical infrastructure.
  3. Non-Destructive: One of the key advantages of hydro excavation is its non-destructive nature. With traditional digging methods, there is always a risk of damaging underground utilities, pipelines, or tree roots. It minimizes this risk by carefully removing the soil while avoiding any potential damage to existing structures.
  4. Time and Cost Efficiency: Hydro excavation is a highly efficient method of digging. It reduces the time required for excavation projects compared to manual labor or heavy machinery. The precise and controlled process helps streamline operations and minimize project delays. Additionally, the non-destructive nature, prevents costly repairs or replacement of damaged infrastructure.
  5. Environmental Friendliness: Hydro excavation is an environmentally friendly method of excavation. It minimizes soil disturbance, reduces soil erosion, and prevents the release of harmful chemicals or pollutants into the environment. It is particularly beneficial in sensitive areas where preserving the natural landscape is essential.

Applications of Hydro Excavation

Hydro excavation has a wide range of applications across various industries. Here are some of the common uses:

  1. Utility Locating: Before any construction or excavation project, it is crucial to locate underground utilities to avoid accidental damage. Hydro excavation is the preferred method for utility locating as it allows for precise and non-destructive exposure of buried utilities.
  2. Daylighting: Daylighting refers to uncovering buried utilities to expose them for inspection, maintenance, or repair. Hydro excavation’s precision and non-destructive nature make it ideal for daylighting applications, ensuring the safety and efficiency of utility maintenance work.
  3. Trenching and Slot Trenching: Hydro excavation is often used for creating trenches or slot trenches for various purposes, such as installing utility lines, pipelines, or underground cables. The controlled excavation process ensures precise and clean trenches without damaging existing infrastructure.
  4. Potholing: Potholing creates small, precise holes to expose underground utilities for inspection or repair. Hydro excavation’s precision and non-destructive nature make it the preferred method for potholing, as it minimizes the risk of damaging critical infrastructure.
  5. Cleaning Catch Basins and Storm Drains: it’s highly effective in cleaning and maintaining catch basins and storm drains. Combining high-pressure water and powerful suction can efficiently remove debris, sediment, and blockages, ensuring proper drainage and preventing flooding.
