Hydro-Excavation Services

Valley Corporation specializes in the utilization of hydro-excavation techniques to ensure the secure and efficient identification of crucial utilities without the risk of damaging infrastructure or harming workers onsite.

Even in situations with limited access, we can dig around existing utilities, gas mains, power lines, etc.. With a reach of up to 600′ from the truck, Valley Corporation can safely perform hydro-excavation in areas where others may encounter difficulties.

Our comprehensive hydro-excavation services are designed to facilitate the initiation of new projects in a safe manner. Additionally, we offer assistance in identifying or exposing existing utilities throughout the entire duration of a project. In the event that repairs are required, our team is readily available and experienced to provide the necessary support.


Initially, hydro-excavation equipment operators employ high-pressure water wands to penetrate the soil and create a softer ground. Subsequently, they utilize suction to transfer the resulting mud slurry into the excavation truck’s tank. This procedure enables crews to reveal deeper layers of soil and uncover any pre-existing underground facility networks.
