Underground Utilities

Degen Excavating offers hydro-excavation services. Hydro-excavation utilizes pressurized water to break-up soil and a vacuum tank to remove the debris. This process provides a non-destructive means to safely locating utilities and precisely excavate an area.

Hydro-excavation dramatically increases our excavating capabilities compared to traditional excavation techniques. For example, we recently utilized hydro-excavation to install 42” diameter caissons, 30’ deep in areas not accessible by conventional means.

Additional benefits of hydro-excavation include:

  • Less site disturbance
  • Less invasive to existing underground utilities
  • Can be used to verify the material, invert, size and condition of utilities up to 20′ deep
  • Save time and labor during construction by quickly exposing utilities with limited access
  • Precise excavation without shoring
  • Remote access can be completed from up to 200 feet away
