Our custom engineered wood pellets can be mixed within our truck or in a pit to absorb the water used in hydro excavation. The pellets are made from virgin wood, so there are no contaminants, and they can hold up to 70% moisture content. Material can be hauled offsite quickly or used for top cover because of the organic value of the wood.
