Hydro excavation is carried out by using a combination of highly pressurised water and high suction excavation to excavate sensitive and delicate areas that would be heavily damaged with traditional excavation methods. Water and dirt mix together to create a slurry that is then sucked out and pumped into a vacuum truck along with the other debris that is generated by the excavation process. We supply a fleet of vacuum trucks for hire ranging in all sizes.

Hydro excavation is a safe and effective alternative to mechanical digging and excavation methods. Because there is no penetrating edge used to move the earth, this method poses no risk to hidden and buried utilities on the site. The water and suction will simply clear the dirt surrounding the buried objects, leaving them untouched and undamaged. Hydro excavation is suitable where utilities need to be exposed as our team are able to work around cables and pipework without causing any damage to them.

We live up to hydro excavation’s reputation as a safe excavation method by always upholding the requirements of our Occupational Health and Safety Management (4801) accreditation. We have been acknowledged for our adherence to strict safety guidelines by WorkSafe Victoria, VESI, NULCA, and the Civil Contractors Federation, and as such been accredited as Telstra suppliers and Dial Before You Dig Certified Locators.
