Hydrovac Excavation- Line Locating:
Hydro-Con provides hydro-excavation services to safely and quickly locate known or unknown subsurface utilities and pipelines. The main purpose of line-locating is to find the position of unknown utilities. Once initial potholing has reached the appropriate depth, the line-location process begins. Hydro-excavation of small cuts running horizontally to the utility at 12, 18 or 24 inch increments allows for proper line-locating.

What is Hydro Excavation?
Hydro-excavation is a safe, non-destructive and cost-effective process that utilizes pressurized water to break up soil. The soil is then removed through an industrial strength vacuum into a debris tank. This process allows for safe and precise excavation, which requires less backfill and restoration, less labor and less environmental impact than traditional digging methods.
Most importantly, hydro excavation virtually eliminates the risk of damaging underground pipelines or utilities. Hydro excavation is also commonly referred to as vacuum excavation, daylighting, water excavation, slot-trenching, hydrovac excavation and potholing.
Why Use Hydro Excavation?
When compared with conventional digging, hydro-excavation is safer. The ability to safely work around gas pipelines and drilling rigs is invaluable to industries such as petroleum and chemical. Utility and other companies utilize the precision of our equipment to open up the ground around buried cable, underground wiring and other sensitive areas.
