Hydro Excavation


Hydro-excavation is a non-destructive soil removal process that utilizes pressurized water and a powerful vacuum system. This technique has become popular due to the precision and safety benefits to both the operator and the utility line or piping below.

Gethmann Construction has both truck-mounted and trailer-mounted options. Each option is equipped with hoses and handgun wands that precisely cut into the soil with the pressurized water. As the soil is moistened to dirt slurry, the unit’s boom is extended out to vacuum the debris into the body tank.
