Why Hydro Excavation?

Hydrovacs are the safest and quickest way to dig around buried utilities and infrastructures. Hydro excavation is a non-destructive process that replaces backhoes or hand-digging to expose underground lines quickly and safely. Hydrovacs use pressurized water and a powerful vacuum system to remove soil without damaging even the most sensitive facilities, including crude oil pipe lines, natural gas pipe lines, water pipe lines, fiber optic cables, and electrical lines.

In the winter the CTI hydrovacs utilize a 1 million BTU on-demand water heater that thaws the ground as they excavate.

Hydro excavation continues to gain recognition as the best practice.
