Why Hydrovac?

Hydro-excavation is a new method of excavating that is growing fast around

the USA and Canada. The hydrovac truck has many applications in the utility and

excavating world. With utility work, we often must dig in close proximity to locates

painted on the ground. Even if there isn’t paint on the ground, sometimes we just

know there’s something down there based on context clues in the area. In the

past that is when we get the shovels out and spend the better part of the day

hand-digging. Just because we’re hand-digging doesn’t mean the employees are

safe or the utility line won’t get damaged. Another technique is to start digging

with the heavy equipment and hope for the best. I have been a part of both

scenarios as a journeyman lineman.
