Hydroexcavation uses a combination of industrial-strength water pressure and vacuum suction to excavate and remove soil. Hydroexcavation is a safer and more precise method of excavation, reducing the risk of electrical contact as well as the risk of damage to underground utilities.

​This method also has been used to excavate trench ways in live substations where underground facilities are numerous and not locatable.
