    Utility Potholing & Vacuum Excavation In Los Angeles

    The ground has become exceedingly congested as a result of site evolution and, more often, the density of existing underground systems. As a result, excavating utilities using standard site inspection procedures has become almost impossible in a lot of regions. In the majority of cases, either the excavator creates pothole damage, putting operators and, in some circumstances, the public at risk, or manual excavation is required, which comes at a hefty expense due to the excavators being paid for in advance.

    Utility Strike: Is It Worth the Cost?

    There are supply disruptions, revenue losses, negative publicity, and dissatisfied customers regarding utility suppliers. There are severe cost consequences for a service contractor, missed deadlines, and the possibility of a customer relationship being destroyed. Above all, utility strikes risk injuring operators and members of the general public. Unfortunately, potholing utilities can be fatal in some situations.

    Utility Potholing In A Nutshell

    If you live in Los Angeles, utility potholing helps a lot. It is a relatively recent technique that utilizes a high vacuum suction system to extract soils or other particles during site investigations, utility validation, construction projects, or other civil engineering work. Rather than employing heavy equipment or hand-held equipment, this less invasive digging technique is used to loosen soils. Following soil loosening, it is vacuumed from the bottom and sent to an onboard spoil/debris tank for disposal.
