Transition to Hydro Excavation
In the past, utility line locating was performed manually using shovels, spades, and backhoes. While these methods were effective, they were also risky, often resulting in accidental breakage or damage to the lines. Today, in places like New England, the safer, more modern, and more accurate method of hydro excavation is preferred.

Hydro Excavation for Utility Line Locating
Hydro excavation is a soil excavation technique that uses high-pressure water combined with a vacuum system. It cuts through the soil, sucks it up, and stores it in large bins housed on trucks attached to the unit. This leaves a clean, well-organized area to perform repairs or maintenance.
Benefits of Hydro Excavation
- Safety: Hydro excavation is a safe method for excavating soil around utility lines, minimizing the risk of damaging the installations.
- Efficiency: As the digging is performed by a high-pressure water system, it is quick and accurate, isolating small areas that need investigation.
- Cleanliness: The soil removal system ensures all excavated soil is removed from the site during work, guaranteeing a clear and easily managed work area.
- Ease of Clean-up: Since the trenches are precisely cut, less backfilling is required after the job is completed.
