EXCAVATION METHODS

WATER

  • High-Pressure Water Breaks up Solids & Materials
  • Effective in Any Soil Condition
  • In Most Cases, Displaced Soil Needs to be Removed for Disposal
  • In Most Conditions, Excavating is Faster
  • Relatively Clean – No Dust Control Issues

AIR

  • Compressed Air Breaks Up Soils & Materials
  • Most Effective in Less Compacted Soils
  • Displaced Soils can be Used as Backfill
  • Overall Productivity Can Increase – No Need to Leave the Dig Site to Refill Water or Dump Soils
  • Can be Messy – Produces a Fair Amount of Dust
