-Hydro Excavation

Vacuum excavation is the process of using pressurized water (hydro-vac) or compressed air (air-vac) and a vacuum source to safely loosen and remove soil/spoils. The process reduces the potential damage to the underground infrastructure while increasing the productive rate of excavation where utilities may be buried.

Vacuum Excavating Helps Avoid Line Strikes!
The underground infrastructure is becoming increasingly crowded,  underground utilities could be almost anywhere. Even isolated areas that seem remote may conceal major gas or telecommunication lines.   Many contractors decide to accept that the risk of strikes cannot be avoided, or it just costs too much.   There is a safer and more productive way to address these risks as an integral part of your safety program by including Vacuum Excavation with either Hydro Excavation or Air Excavation.

-Utility Locating

Utility locating is the process of identifying and labeling underground utilities to help make excavations safer. These utilities may include lines for telephones, electricity distribution, natural gas, oil, cable television, fiber optics, traffic lights, street lights, storm drains, water mains and wastewater pipes.

Because of the many different types of materials that go into manufacturing each different type of utilities, we use numerous detection and location methods. For metal pipes and cables or other conductive materials, this is often done with electromagnetic equipment consisting of a transmitter and a receiver. For non-conductive types of pipe, such as poly and fiberglass, Line Finders offers a Vacuum Excavation Service to safely expose the utilities.

Location by these means is necessary because maps often lack the pinpoint precision needed to ensure proper clearance. In older areas, it is especially a problem since maps may be inaccurate, or may be missing entirely.

Our Underground Utility Locating Service Includes:

   ♦   Locate underground utilities using technological locating equipment

   ♦   Customized pin flags, marker paint, marking whiskers* or wood lathes*

   ♦   GPS Coordinates of location

   ♦   Weather-proof copy of Sketch Sheet left at location on white/black pin flag

   ♦   Line crossing notification (24-hour advanced notice if requested)

   ♦   Vehicle and equipment usage cost   

   ♦   Digital copy of Sketch Sheet, with details and pictures, provided upon invoicing

   ♦   Immediate notification of mapping or One-Call Database discrepancies

-carsonite installation

For high visibility and easy identification of underground utility lines, the carsonite utility marker is the perfect choice. The marker flexes when impacted and returns to its original position and is virtually impossible to remove without proper equipment. In addition, the marker will survive multiple gunshots, being run over by a vehicle or rubbed on by livestock without significant loss of legibility or damage to structure. These permanently pigmented markers have factory applied decals that provide the most visible identification of buried utility lines, day or night.

The Carsonite Utility Marker Installation Service Includes:
♦   66″ Carsonite utility marker (available in a variety of colors)
♦   Printed graphic (indicating type of utility and emergency contact information)
♦   Labor (installed 12-16” deep and within line-of-site)
♦   Detailed installation report
♦   Vehicle, ATV and equipment usage cost

-Site Supervision

Coupling the Excavation Supervision Service with the Utility Locating Services is essential in order to ensure the integrity of underground utilities is kept while being exposed by a third-party contractor. Often times, utility companies do not have the man power or prior knowledge of the excavation in order to have personnel onsite. With highly skilled Line Finders Personnel onsite, the utility company will  know exactly where the crossing was performed and that all lines were accounted for prior to excavation. Any policies or procedures the utility company may have regarding the exposure of lines can and will be enforced during the excavation.

Direct costs of a line strike include:
♦   Serious injury or death
♦   Site repair costs, lost labor, equipment damage, fines
♦   Disruption of the utility service from the strike

Indirect costs of a line strike often include:
♦   Loss of resources, time from reporting accidents and ensuing investigation
♦   Increased insurance costs and/or legal fees
♦   Damage to a company’s reputation, lost revenues and decreased employee morale

The Excavation Supervision Service Includes:
♦   Relocate / remark prior to excavation
♦   Prior notification if electrical lines present for de-energizing (lock-out/tag-out)
♦   Onsite supervision of all aspects of excavation
♦   Coordinates of location (Crossroads, GPS, Township, Range, Section)
♦   Detailed pictures (pre-excavation, during excavation and post-excavation)
♦   Completed excavation form (signed by excavator)
♦   Completed sketch sheet (signed by excavator)
♦   Vehicle and equipment usage cost
