Hydrovac Services for Whitehorse & Yukon

When you are constructing a new building on your commercial property, you might need to build the foundation around buried utility lines. You may need to repair burst pipes and make sure to do it without further damaging the pipes. So, how can you dig and preserve the structures already buried under your feet? Don’t worry. Arctic Backhoe Services Ltd. has the right solution for you. We offer hydrovac services in the Yukon for industries that need safe and environmentally friendly drilling methods.

What is Hydrovac Excavation?

Short for hydro excavation, hydrovac excavation is a unique method that allows you to preserve any underground structures near your dig site. Our technicians drive a hydrovac truck to your site and insert rods into the ground – typically around the area you want to dig up. Then, they release pressurized water into the soil. The soil then liquefies and turns into a runny mud by-product.

Once the soil enters this liquid state, our technicians use vacuum power to remove the mud and dispose of it in the truck’s debris tank. This process allows them to remove unwanted soil and conserve any items buried under the dig site. Once they remove all of the dirt from the area, you can then proceed with whatever project you began. With over 30 years of experience in the industry, we provide you with a non-destructive drilling method to help you accomplish your goals.

Will I Benefit from Hydrovac Services in Yukon?

If you think that hydrovac excavation doesn’t offer many benefits, you might want to think again. Aside from environment preservation, hydrovac services provide the following benefits:

  • Allows you to dig up frozen earth
  • Eliminates damage to underground structures
  • Involves advanced technology to finish the job quickly
  • Presents a safer and more effective excavation method
  • Reduces site restoration costs
  • Works with all soil types (even clay)
