Locating buried pipelines and cables for underground utility projects is an important and very concise practice that our team at Comer Construction continuously strives to ensure is both safe and environmentally friendly. Recently, we took our underground utility work to the next level with the addition of our first vacuum excavation truck. The 2018 Kenworth with a GapVax HV55 Hydro Excavator is a safe, non-destructive and accurate way to safely locate buried pipelines and cables.
Here’s how it works:
High pressure water flows around buried utilities penetrating the soil to create small soil particles that are easily removed by the vacuum.
Comer Construction purchased the Hydro Excavator in February 2020 and has been operating it daily on existing underground utility projects. The vacuum excavation truck is also available to rent. Give us a call for rates and availability.
