Hydro Excavation

What We Do and How We Do It

IVIS Construction Inc. is proud to offer a large fleet of VAC-CON® Combo units, allowing us to provide a variety of hydro-vac sewer services, including sewer drain cleaning for industrial, commercial, and municipal clients.

Hydro Excavation is a non-destructive, accurate way to excavate soil, trench or locate underground utilities, and provide damage and safety control for the future. This process involves using high-pressure water and vacuuming to remove solids from lines.

At IVIS Construction Inc., all of our operators are trained and certified on FORTIS Alberta high voltage power lines using bonding mats.

Services Provided for Hydro Excavation:

  • Vacuuming and transfer of slurry (which is created from breaking up the ground with pressurised water) into debris
  • Vacuum of solids, semi-solids, and liquids found in the line
  • Vacuuming of debris out of sumps & septic tanks, manholes, vaults, and lift stations
  • Excavation on frozen ground conditions with the use of heated pressurised water
  • Ability to accurately trench with minimal ground disturbance
