Hydro Excavation

Completing projects safely and efficiently when you don’t know what you don’t know can be a challenge.  The engineering and construction industries deal with unknowns on a daily basis as existing structures get replaced by new buildings, roadways get widened, and utilities are extended or upgraded.  The unknowns impact cost, production, and safety. General Excavating can help remove some of the uncertainties by locating below grade utilities with Hydro Excavation.  Hydro Excavation uses high pressured water combined with a powerful vacuum system to expose and locate below grade utilities and significantly reduce potential damage to important infrastructure.  Recent completed projects include locating existing utilities on a City of Seward Electric & Power Project as a subcontractor to Commonwealth Electric Company, potholing for Kiewit Building Group on various projects at the Henry Doorly Zoo and locating utilities for Sampson Construction on the new Scheels Sporting Goods Store in Lincoln.  Contact Jeff Irons at or Steve Crosby at to discuss how General Excavating's Hydro Excavation can impact the successful completion of your project.
