Hydrovac Excavation

We offer professional hydrovac services in the Yukon for industries that need safe and environmentally friendly drilling methods.

What is Hydrovac Excavation?

Short for hydro excavation, hydrovac excavation is a unique method that allows you to preserve any underground structures near your dig site. Our technicians drive a hydrovac truck to your site and insert rods into the ground – typically around the area you want to dig up. Then, they release pressurized water into the soil. The soil then liquefies and turns into a runny mud by-product.

Once the soil enters this liquid state, our technicians use vacuum power to remove the mud and dispose of it in the truck’s debris tank. This process allows them to remove unwanted soil and conserve any items buried under the dig site. Once they remove all of the dirt from the area, you can then proceed with whatever project you began. With over 30 years of experience in the industry, we provide you with a non-destructive drilling method to help you accomplish your goals.

Will I Benefit from Hydrovac Services in Yukon?
