Hydro Excavation or Air Excavation…

There are 3 processes that can be used for daylighting, trenching or digging a hole for a pile or post. Contractors can either use a backhoe service, a hydrovac service or an air excavation service. Using hydrovac equipment to expose underground assets is generally assumed to be the best and most environmentally friendly method. Contractors would consider air excavation if the contractor wants the excavated soil and sediment to remain dry which may be better for back filling.
Air excavation will take longer than hydro excavation, and will only be used when the soil around the project is the right consistency and is not frozen. Hydrovacing is much more flexible and can be used in a variety of weather conditions and applications.
