How Does Hydro Excavation Lower Costs?

How Does Hydro Excavation Lower Costs?

Hydro excavation is precise, safe, fast and far less destructive than traditional excavation techniques. The cost of a utility strike is high in terms of penalties, repair costs, and lost time. Hydro excavation is a cost-effective way to implement your next excavation project. Here’s why:

The hydro excavation process allows for quick, clean, and precise excavations—requiring less backfill, less labor force, less restoration, and less environmental impact than conventional digging methods. The surgeon-like accuracy is a result of a water gun tool which removes only the necessary material instead of a large, less-than-accurate backhoe.

This razor-like precision is considered “preventive excavation” as it tends to disrupt less ground while searching for underground utilities and infrastructure. This limits the scope (and invasiveness) of traditional excavation methods, ultimately lowering the cost!

There are several hydro excavation services which also aid in lowering costs during the evacuation process. The sub-surface utility engineering process observes and records depths, locations, and quality of buried utilities extremely quickly, and in the most efficient manner. This process itself lowers costs in pre-construction, as it eliminates accidental line breakage, unexpected utility relocation, change orders, environmental disasters, and community impact.

Remote excavating leaves virtually no footprint and a very clean worksite because—even when working inside buildings or underneath structures—the only necessary equipment is the water gun tool and a vacuum hose. Lower footprint and cleaner worksites mean lower costs in the areas of cleanup and just being eco-friendly in general.

Who is Ecotech?

Ecotech specializes in hydro and air excavation throughout the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast Region. Leveraging precision, safety, and efficiency, Ecotech is your excavation solutions partner. Our policy is to reach for the highest level of safety while complying with government health, safety laws, and regulations.

Defining Hydro Excavation
Hydro excavation is a non-mechanical, non-destructive process that combines pressurized water and a high flow of moving air to simultaneously excavate and evacuate soil and natural debris. Benefits of the hydro excavation process include:

Improved Safety:
Unlike metal shovels or backhoe buckets, high pressure water does not damage gas lines, electric lines, cable, pipes or other underground utilities. The safety of our employees, clients, public property, and environment is a top priority at Ecotech. Our employees receive extensive training in adherence to government health, safety laws, and regulations.

Lower Costs:
Hydro excavation saves you time and money. Unlike traditional excavation processes, hydro excavation provides more precision, reduces backfilling, and limits restoration costs. Costly fees associated with accidental hits are virtually eliminated.

Guaranteed Sustainability:
By using high-pressure water to precisely remove soil and debris, hydro excavation provides minimal disruption to the surrounding environment.
