What Is Hydrovac?


Hydrovac excavation is the new standard in regard to digging in the vicinity of underground infrastructure. Hydrovac is a mechanical means of soil extraction through industrial-strength vacuum from a hydro excavation truck to excavate and evacuate dust, dirt and debris when using high-pressure water jet devices for breaking ground. The unwanted excavated materials are transferred to a debris tank located on the truck. Thus, hydrovac can also be used as a means of debris removal.


What Is Hydrovac Excavation Mainly Used For?


Hydrovac excavation is the perfect solution for safely and quickly exposing underground infrastructure that may or may not be mapped. In contrast to manual or conventional mechanical digging, which can rip gas lines and fiber optic cables underground, the non-invasive method of hydrovac excavation eliminates the risk of underground utility damage while leaving a smaller ecological footprint. Hydrovac is the safest means of excavation within the tolerance zone around underground facilities.


Hydrovac excavation equipment can also be productive at long range, gaining access to areas that are otherwise restricted. The many applications of hydrovac excavation include:

  • Locating underground gas lines and pipelines
  • Digging narrow trenches to install cables and pipelines
  • Sign, pole and line installation and location
  • Pipe and sewer rehabilitation
  • Digging in frozen ground
  • Debris removal
  • Landscaping

The excavated area created from hydrovac excavation is precise and allows utilities and underground infrastructure to be exposed without damage. However, locates are still required when using a soil vacuum truck. Alberta Liquid Waste Hauling has a vast and versatile fleet available to best serve your next industrial project. Reach out to us for all your hydrovac services in the Edmonton area.


Tips to Consider When Buying Access to a Hydrovac Truck

  • Weather conditions
  • Ground conditions
  • Distance from the truck
  • Depth of excavation
  • Dump Location
  • Off-road or on-road
  • Bridge laws for the truck

If your excavation project requires accurate digging in utility-dense areas, or mandates soft digging as opposed to mechanical digging, the safest and most efficient way to get the job done is by using a hydrovac.
