Also known as locating or pot holding, CT's hydro-excavation services use water and vacuum technology to safely blast through dirt and rocks to expose buried utilities or pipelines and to open the ground for future work. Hydro-excavation reduces the risk of damage and provides a safe and non-destructive alternative to conventional backhoes or mechanical means while improving job productivity and safety.
CT has managed excavation projects ranging from several thousand tons of Superfund regulated waste to one ton projects. The most common excavation projects involve petroleum-contaminated soils and typically require a backhoe, loader, roll-offs or end-dumps, and necessitate the appropriate arrangements for transportation and treatment/disposal. CT can also perform non-destructive excavations with the use of air moving equipment.
