Why Hydro Excavation Is A Safe, Cost-Effective Digging Method

Tuesday, November 1st, 2016

Underground facilities for water or electrical utilities are often essential components in the construction industry. To be able to properly build these facilities, extensive digging work may be required. These types of jobs are sometimes challenging because of the risk of hazards, both for the building and for the crew that is working. Fortunately, the development of hydro excavation has significantly reduced these hazards. The following will detail just how hydro excavation works and why it is a safe, cost-effective digging method.

The hydro excavation process

Hydro excavation uses an air suction pump and highly pressurized water to break apart compacted soil and other hard debris. Once the debris has been broken down, the suction pump eliminates it from the construction area and deposits it into a special chamber. This excavating method is less destructive to the environment and more efficient than traditional methods.

The long term and short term advantages of hydro excavation

Hydro excavation is one of the most efficient and accurate digging techniques. Another important advantage of working with hydro excavation is how much it improves safety and reduces property damage when compared to more traditional digging techniques.

Throughout any excavating procedure, one of the most critical elements to consider is the protection and welfare of those in the general area.
Because accuracy is greatly enhanced with hydro excavation, the risk of accidents or injuries occurring is greatly reduced. The general quality of the excavating work is drastically increased as well. Along with preserving the welfare of those who are participating in the construction job, hydro excavation protects cabling, wires, and subsurface water lines from damage. As a result, hydro excavation can dramatically increase the rate of construction and reduce the cost of future repairs or renovations. If safety concerns and risks are minimized, property insurance expenses should decrease as well.
