Hydro Excavation is proven to be the cleanest, safest and most versatile ways to dig, making it a substitution for many traditional excavation applications. It's also the most efficient method of excavation for daylighting, line locating, trenching, post/pole holes and more. At Hurricane, we provide our full range of services to municipal, industrial, construction and commercial clients, at competitive pricing. Contact us to discuss your project needs and experience the Hurricane difference.
Daylighting and line locating expose and uncover underground utilities, including pipes, lines, cables, wires, and crossings using hydro excavation. It's more practical, efficient and mitigates damage to underground utility infrastructure when compared even to hand digging. Daylighting and line locating can be used not only as an alternative to traditional mechanical excavation but as an aid to provide safe views of underground infrastructure and allow mechanical equipment to operate safely and expediently, resulting in lower project costs.
Slot trenching uses our equipment to dig a very precise trench for cables and utilities. It offers maximum accuracy and precision with little disturbance to the surrounding area while mitigating the chance of damage to existing underground infrastructure. Slot trenching is also advantageous when working in areas where conventional mechanical excavation equipment can't get access due to existing infrastructure or site restrictions.
Our hydrovac trucks can create the perfectly placed hole for poles, posts and piles without restriction from time of year or weather. A clean and precise excavation means minimal disturbance with little backfilling and compacting required. It's ideal for areas with dense infrastructure both above and below ground or high traffic, space constricted areas where multiple pieces of equipment aren't feasible. Our earth hydro excavation function services are perfect for any kind of posts, poles and signs including power and telecom poles, traffic signals, light standards, and more.
The top of the line fleet of equipment at Hurricane includes dry air suction and excavation tools. Rather than using water, like traditional hydro excavation, dry suction excavation uses suction only (for loose or liquid materials) or high-pressure air via an air spade/lance to break down the soil and material simultaneously with vacuum suction to evacuate the material into the trucks storage unit. Since this material is dry, it can either be removed to an approved off-site location or moved to another location on site. Dry vac excavation has a wide variety of uses across utility and engineering, roadwork, rail, industrial, construction and landscape sites.
With an experienced team, and years of construction and excavation knowledge behind us we're able to provide any service related to backfilling and restoration including recycled soil, unshrinkable fill, asphalt and concrete works.
Traditional mechanical equipment just doesn't cut it when trying to work in frozen climates. Our trucks include onboard water heaters which allow our operators to cut and push through ice and frozen terrain, allowing construction and emergency work 24 hours a day, 365 days a year - no matter the conditions.
Licensing and approval by the Ministry of the Environment allow us to provide safe removal and transfer of a wide variety of materials. The non-destructive nature of hydro excavation also enables us to work in environmentally sensitive areas where traditional forms of excavation could cause damage.
We hold an Alternate Locate Agreement (ALA). Traditional field locate requests can take days or weeks. With our ALA, we're able to expedite work that meets specific criteria. We submit a request using our ID and can receive a locate ticket in a matter of hours, increasing efficiency and saving administrative costs.
Along with all hydro excavation services, we also offer a number of facility and maintenance services using our extensive fleet of hydro vac equipment and experienced team of operators. Services include the following:
