What is hydro excavation?

Hydro excavation is a safer and more efficient method of digging up and removing the soil covering pipelines or other buried assets. Columbus Daylighting utilizes pressurized water or air coupled with a hydraulically powered vacuum, to relocate soil to our truck-mounted debris tank. The process provides a cleaner, safer, and more environmentally friendly solution than conventional excavation methods that require more labor, backfill, and restoration. It also protects the pipes, lines, and cables from potential excavation damage.

Who uses hydro excavation services?

Area construction companies and engineering providers partner with Columbus Daylighting’s hydro excavation services to expedite construction projects and minimize downtime. We routinely work on projects that include new and existing road construction, commercial, residential, and industrial building construction, and parking lot construction. We are able to then locate and plot underground assets to expedite the construction process.

Why use hydro excavation?

Hydro excavation is an eco-friendlier and faster method of unearthing the underground utility lines. It limits the physical labor needed, as well as the backfill, restoration, and environmental impacts that are caused by manually digging a hole to uncover the various cables and pipes. It also saves them from being dug up and disconnected by using a vacuum to suck the dirt up and away into a debris tank attached to the truck. This process, often called potholing, is something Columbus Daylighting is called upon to provide routinely. While it is not the only hydro excavation service the company provides, it is one of the most popular services requested in the Columbus and New Albany areas.
