What is hydro excavation?

Hydro excavation is the process of removing dirt and soil with the use of highly pressurized water and powerful vacuum suctioning technology. Hydro excavation is a safer way to gain access to underground infrastructure because it does not damage pipes or root systems. It is also a very effective method to build trenches and ditches, as well as go as deep as 60 feet to reach underground pipes for maintenance and repairs. To find out more about hydro excavation, contact us today.

How do you solve water drainage problems near Durham?

Most drainage issues are caused by an insufficient pitch or slope in your yard, which prevents water runoff from being channeled away from the home. A slope of 3% or greater is usually necessary to avoid drainage issues. It is best to utilize a French drain or catch basins. To move water away, you can also build a low region known as a swale (shallow gully). However, it is usually preferred to have runoff water flow naturally overland rather than using catch basins or French drains, which frequently choke over time.

Who is responsible for maintaining stormwater management ponds in Durham?

It all boils down to where the pond is located. Cities are liable for any retention ponds located within the public right of way or on town-owned land. Private property runoff is the responsibility of the property owner, property management business, or community Homeowners Association (HOA). So, whether you have a retention pond in your neighborhood, business park, or retail center, your HOA or property management firm must take care of it.

What are Hydrovacs used for in Durham?

A hydrovac is a piece of machinery that utilizes high-pressure water to shear and coagulate soil while concurrently drawing the soil out of the excavation using a high-volume vacuum. The standard truck-mounted unit holds both fresh water and dirt from the excavation.

A hydrovac is commonly used for daylighting (digging to locate underground utilities). Other applications include soil trenching, piling hole excavation, and waste removal. Digging may be tough in cold weather, so using a hydrovac might be beneficial in this situation as well.
