Benefits Of Choosing Hydro Excavation

by Mia Kuhn

If you have a large scale construction project that you have planned for your residential home or business site, then you will likely need to work with an excavation company to make sure that the ground is prepared around the build area. Hydro excavation is something that you can choose that has many benefits over traditional excavation practices.

Reduced Environmental And Property Damage

The purpose of using hydro excavation practices to remove soil and other debris from a work site area is to ensure the excavation is precise. Precision means that soil and ground disruption is minimized across your property. Disruption of the site can cause erosion issues and it can also lead to the pollution of the nearby groundwater. Ecosystems can be disturbed due to large scale excavation, as well, and this can have lasting effects when it comes to the habitats and food sources that are typically available in the region.

In addition, since the soil is not disturbed unless it is part of the excavation process, you can retain a great deal of your landscaping. This may be highly important to you as a homeowner, especially if you have already spent thousands of dollars to create a well landscaped property. Since there are no chemicals used in the process, you can expect growth of the greenery to remain healthy. Efficient removal of the soil through a tube suction process can also assist with this since digging and piling are not necessary.

Accident Reduction

Excavation is meant to be a precise process where soil is removed only in a specific area. However, since excavators are large pieces of equipment, precision will often include the over-excavation of a space to make sure that the equipment can access the site. In this situation, it can be easy to accidentally disrupt a buried utility line, especially if it is not marked correctly. 

Hydro excavation does not have this same issue due to a more pinpointed precision process. And, if the water does happen to come into contact with a gas or water line, the pressure is often not strong enough to cause any damage. This has to do with the way that the water is targeted or directed towards the excavation area.

In addition, worker safety is maintained when fewer pieces of machinery are needed. Fewer workers are often needed as well, which can reduce the general activity and distractions on the work site. Contact a company, like Degen Excavating Company, for more help.
