Trident Hydro-Vac has over a decade of experience in the industry with safe and effective excavation

What Is Hydro Excavation?

The process of hydro excavation is the only nondestructive method of digging. It utilizes pressurized water and a vacuum system to quickly and safely expose underground infrastructure. During the hydrovac process, pressurized water is injected into the ground through a handheld wand.

How It Works

Hydro excavation is a process where high-pressure water is used to loosen soil, rocks, clay, gravel, and other earth material while it is continually "sucked up" into a debris tank for later disposal.

Advancements in hydro excavation since its inception have made it the de facto standard for providing a non-destructive means to safely locate utilities and precisely excavate an area. The process is widely regarded and highly valued for being safe and effective.

Cost-Saving Benefits

Our Hydro-Vac trucks have saved the industry millions of dollars by preventing breakage of important utilities and existing landscape. As only the immediate hole is disturbed, minimal remediation is required, therefore resulting in significant cost savings.
