Hydrovac Services

Hydrovac, or hydro-excavation, is simply the process of using high pressured water to remove dirt and material from an excavation site. 

Unlike traditional excavation, hydrovac is very precise and easy to control, especially in high risk environments such as exposing pipe and buried utilities.

Syn-core has been offering hydrovac services for years, for both hydro-excavation and as support for our directional drilling projects.
