Soft Dig Excavation
Soft Dig Excavation is one of the most effective innovations in non-mechanical digging. It is also referred to as “Vacuum Excavation”, or “Hydro Excavation”. Bay Area Environmental utilizes the latest and most advanced soft dig excavation equipment available. Depending on the application, the process uses either pressurized air or water and a powerful vacuum system to simultaneously break up and evacuate the soil around any underground components that might otherwise be damaged by conventional digging. Where excavations must take place around known or unknown utilities, high voltage electrical, natural gas, fiber optic systems, or T1’s, soft dig technology provides a non-destructive hydraulic solution that is low impact and minimally invasive. The slurry that is removed in the process is vacuumed in to a debris tank that can also be used later to backfill the excavation. The process drastically reduces the risk of damaging underground components and can be a significant time saver.
Typical Applications of Soft Dig Excavation & Vacuum Excavation
- Sewer Line Repairs
- Water Lines
- Underground Utilities
- Gas Lines
- All Telecommunication Lines
- Excavations below a Building
- Geotechnical Drilling
- Trench Digging
Advantages of Soft Dig Technology
Soft Dig Excavation and Vacuum Excavations offer a much higher level of safety for work crews. It reduces the risk of trench cave-ins, electrocution, or damage to underground lines. Because there is no heavy equipment involved it leaves a far smaller footprint at the job site and is faster and less expensive than traditional excavation methods. In highly congested areas, soft dig technology means less disruption to traffic as its smaller footprint requires little space when compared to conventional excavation methods.
