Hydro excavation is clearly the pioneer technology that is rapidly changing the way engineers and constructors approach critical subsurface challenges. As the video illustrates, hydro excavation has many applications that provide a variety of solutions across multiple industries. At the core of every solution is the guiding principal of safety.
The age of “dig and duck” is over. It is time for America’s pipeline and general construction industry to embrace all that hydro excavation has to offer. The Canadians discovered hydro excavation more than fifty years ago and quickly saw the benefits to facility owners, constructors, the public and the environment.
