What is Vacuum Excavation?

Vacuum excavation is digging by using a vacuum to break apart material with high-pressure water or air.  Vacuum excavation is also referred to as soft digging, hydro excavation, air excavation, remote excavation and preventive excavation.  It is a non-mechanical, non-destructive process that excavates and evacuate soil and natural debris at a controlled rate. The soil travels through a wide, flexible hose to a truck-mounted debris tank – which can be parked hundreds of feet from the dig site to minimize congestion and additional surface damage.
