Vacuum Potholing

After the underground utilities are electronically designated using either electromagnetic pipe locators, acoustic pipe locators, ground penetrating radar or a combination of any of then, the next stage in data reliability, equivalent to Quality Level A, is obtained by Vacuum excavation AKA potholing.

Non-Destructive Air-vacuum Excavation (potholing) to expose the utilities being survey to determine their exact depth and location. Precisely locating underground utilities help the designers to plan their construction project to eliminate potential damage and un-necessary relocations.

Our vacuum locating truck is located in the Flathead Valley, Kalispell, Montana.
