What is Hydro Excavation?

Hydro excavation is the process of removing soil with pressurized water and a vacuum to excavate material. It is ideal for removing soil around existing facilities and is less destructive than heavy machinery. It can be used for many excavation applications.

Applications for Hydro Excavation:

Underground utility repairs
 Trenching excavation
Sign and pole installations
Potholing or daylighting
Pipe and sewer rehabilitation
Landscape areas, green belts, paved areas, etc.

How Hydro Excavation Works

Terra Contracting’s hydro excavation team utilizes the RAMVAC Hydro Excavator truck. It combines high-pressure water and a high-powered air vacuum. This system precisely cuts through the soil, breaking it up into a slurry which is then vacuumed from the excavation area, transferring the debris into a debris tank. The target utility lines, safe through the excavation process, are then exposed for whatever work needs to be performed, leaving the areas around the work zone undisturbed.
