Hydro Excavation

Hydro Excavation

Hydro excavation is the process of excavation using pressurized water and high cfm vacuum. This turns the soil into a slurry, allowing it to be easily vacuumed and transferred to a debris tank. Hydro excavation creates an easier solution for safely uncovering existing utility lines, installing new utility lines, potholing, trenching, debris removal, and more. The process is non-destructive and much more effective than conventional methods when experts face frozen or challenging soil conditions. With the ability to dig at a distance of up to 200 feet from the hydro vacuum excavation truck, This system is capable of working in areas in which access is limited. 

How CIT Uses Hydro Excavation

3. Piling Hole Excavation

Hydro excavation can be used to dig holes of various diameters and depths to make way for all types of pilings.
