Hydro Excavation for Cold Weather Digging

Conventional excavation methods are not ideal when digging in a tight or congested spaces. Hydro excavation equipment can be located away from the actual excavation site, making it a great method when fiber optic cables, telephone lines, water mains or other utility lines need to be repaired or excavation. The restoration requirements are minimized on-site and traffic congestion is lessened.

PowerVac hydro excavators can be parked way from the actual work area and hoses can be used to extend to the excavation site. The hydro excavator is a self-contained mobile unit that can be placed where convenient. PowerVac uses hydro excavation for cold weather digging because it is fast, efficient, and safe.

Cold Weather Digging is Safe with Hydro Excavation

The hydro excavator uses a unique combination of water pressure and vacuum, combined in one self-contained mobile unit. Water is pressurized and injected into the ground through a handheld wand to safely wash soil from the underground area. The resulting slurry is vacuumed from the excavation through a large debris hose connected to a debris tank.

Hydro excavation is a new process that is becoming popular because of the benefits that it provides. These benefits include environmental protection. This is especially important when it comes to cold weather digging and is one of the major concerns of developers. They need to take into consideration the impact of the changes they will be making to the environment. Cold weather digging is traditionally a process that causes a lot of pollution. Hydro excavation reduces this problem a lot.
