Cold Weather Digging Services

cold-weather-diggingHydro excavation is a quick and safe method for digging in cold weather conditions across New England. Since hydro excavation uses water as its main cutting agent, its a non pollutant method of cold weather digging, it can cause no danger to the water table in frozen areas and poses no risk of damaging vital infrastructure such as pipes, communication networks or small town facilities such as sewer and water lines.

Cold weather digging in New England is traditionally a process that causes a lot of pollution. Hydro excavation reduces this problem a lot. The hydro excavation process does not contaminate underground water.

Cold weather digging using hydro excavation

A little research into history allows us to take a quick glimpse into the conditions encountered by early developers in cold weather regions. Conditions were appalling and methods had to be devised to soften frozen ground to enable digging to commence. Scant regard was paid to the environment whilst conditions were too unpleasant to worry about things like that. It was a dangerous work and unfortunately the landscape was treated with little respect.

Today things are different; a new digging technology that uses only water and air has been developed. The process hydro excavation is ideally suited to cold weather digging conditions. It is an accurate, non destructive, non polluting technology that works in any environment. Hot water and steam are able to thaw frozen land and cut trenches with precision into the harshest conditions imaginable.

Excavated soil is vacuum pumped into large holding containers, housed on the trucks and stored until needed to refill the cut. On-board heating systems stop it from freezing in the tanks. By using water to cut the required construction or maintenance channels, precise areas of designated land can be worked and returned to normal quickly. This system ensures minimal damage to existing installations like pipes or utility lines.

Cold weather digging using hydro excavation technology is the best way to maintain services in frozen regions. It is a 100% environmentally friendly method of digging in cold weather conditions which involves using less labor or transporting large convoys of heavy vehicles. Cold weather digging in environmentally sensitive areas has just become a lot more acceptable thanks to the invention of hydro excavation technology.

Hydro excavation is the new way to solve old problems. We service all of New England including: Cape Cod, Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont.
