What is Hydro Excavation?

Hydro excavation does not use mechanical tools such as drills or backhoes to dig. Instead, hydro excavation uses pressurized water to break up dirt and soil into a slurry. This slurry can then be easily removed from the site using a high capacity vacuum. Goliath’s hydro-vac trucks are equipped with these tools as well as a holding tank to collect the slurry and dispose of it at a proper disposal site.

While mechanical excavation can be disruptive, dangerous, and incompatible during certain weather conditions, hydro excavation is able to adapt to any situation. Even in the cold Iowa winter, where the ground is frozen solid, our hydro-vac trucks can still get the job done thanks to the on-board boilers. Hydro excavation also poses minimal risk to technicians and underground utilities. Instead of using heavy backhoes to uncover wiring, hydro-vacs spray pressurized water to gently uncover utilities.

How does hydrovac work?

Goliath’s hydro-vac trucks are equipped with a high pressure water wind which technicians use to direct the spray of the water. This increases accuracy when uncovering underground utilities. Our trucks are also equipped with a high capacity vacuum to suck up remaining slurry into storage tanks. Once the job is completed, the tanks are emptied in the proper disposal area.

Our trucks operate all year round, rain or shine. This is useful to our Midwest customers who can not wait around all winter for excavation services to be completed. And this process does not involve large trucks and machines. All we need is one of our hydro-vac trucks and a couple technicians. This is a much more efficient way of excavating a site.

The hydrovac truck is equipped with a tank for the mud and debris to be stored until it can be safely processed and disposed of at the proper location.
