Tired of utility strikes, busted pipes and damaged lines? You need Hydro excavation experts. Hydro excavation from Hanlon Environmental is the safest and one of the most effective way to locate and dig buried utilities, pipelines, slot trenches, pole holes and more.

What is Hydro Excavation? Hydro excavation is a non-destructive method of vacuum excavation using both high-pressure water to loosen the soil, and a simultaneous vacuum to remove the spoils. Unlike backhoes, augers, and trenchers, this method virtually eliminates the risk of damaging buried pipelines, cables, utilities, and other underground structures while digging

More companies and contractors are becoming aware that some of their activities have direct and indirect effects on the environment. Practices such as hydro excavation reduce the risks of environmental contamination and give better damage and safety control. The Hydro excavation process involves a combination of high-pressure water blasting and industrial vacuum loading to loosen and remove soil.
