Vacuum Excavation and Potholing

Avoid utility strikes.

One of the dangers with underground excavation is the possibility for a utility strike. With the use of a vacuum excavator, utilities can be located safely without fear of damage or disruption. This process uses a pressurized water jet to loosen the earth and a heavy industrial vacuum to remove the material. Excavation can also be completed underneath asphalt or concrete slabs. This process used in conjunction with ground penetrating radar can ensure a safe working site.

Other Uses of Vacuum Excavation:

  • Cleaning out valve boxes or transition sumps
  • Building area wells
  • Cooling tower sumps

The process uses a pressurized water jet to loosen the earth and a heavy industrial vacuum to remove the material. Once the utility is located and measurements are taken the material can be placed back into the opening. Excavation can be completed underneath asphalt or concrete slabs once a penetration is made.

  • Building Area wells
  • Cooling Tower sumps
  • Anything where water and a vacuum could help
