Hydrovaccing is a fast, non-destructive method of excavation which uses pressurized water to dig down through the ground, and a powerful vacuum to remove the created slurry. The slurry is then stored in an on-board spoils tank for later disposal.
While some drilling contractors will outsource daylighting requirements, Walker Drilling Ltd. is able to provide this service as part of a drilling contract package. This service can reduce wait times for daylighting and increase project safety, thereby lowering overall costs and risks. Walker Drilling Ltd. has 2 trailer-mounted vacuum excavation units that can be made available for your project. These units are also useful under certain project conditions to remove drilling used fluids and/or cuttings from site.
Where sensitive underground infrastructure is involved, daylighting before drilling significantly reduces the possibility of an underground utility strike, creating a much safer and lower-risk environment for drilling projects.
We are committed to being your preferred drilling contractor by consistently providing the best service.
