Hydrovac 50 scaled

Northern Colorado hydrovac services are a popular option when it comes to moving earth and getting land ready for construction. Using highly pressurized water to move or remove ground, hydrovac provides a safe way to excavate land, uncover what is underground, and prepare the land for a new project. NG Hydrovac offers a full suite of services that focuses on safety, quality, and service. With years of experience and quality tools and employees, we are the top choice for hydrovac services in Northern Colorado.


Our large-scale hydrovac services fall into three main categories:



Instead of digging through the earth and risking hitting things buried underground or spending lots of time before the start of a project, hydrovac allows for excavation that tends to be faster, safer, and more effective than other methods. The time it takes to spray pressurized water on the ground and remove the earth is much shorter than using manual diggers to remove the earth.


Our hydrovac excavation services include potholing, which exposes utility lines safely and quickly. By using water instead of other diggers to remove the earth, potholing removes the risk of accidentally hitting a utility line and causing damage. Potholing is often done for repairs or during construction projects and allows faster progress to be made, which helps the entire project stay on schedule.


Our excavation teams are also experienced with slot trenching, often to install pipes or cables. Using the hydrovac process for slot trenching allows for a more precise trench and for the project to be completed quickly and safely. Hydrovac slot trenching also doesn’t damage the land or buildings around the trench, which removes much of the risk.


Hydrovac excavation can also be used for daylighting, which exposes pipes or utility lines to daylight by removing the dirt and debris around them with pressurized water. Hydrovac daylighting works with a wide variety of surfaces, including dirt, clay, and frozen ground. Our experienced hydrovac daylighting teams can work in all conditions to expose utility lines safely and efficiently.


Material Removal

hydrovac truckHydrovac processes are also incredibly effective for removing materials at all stages of the construction process. Our experienced teams perform hydrovac tank cleaning on a number of tanks, including fuel storage tanks and frac tanks. Using pressurized water to remove the dirt and debris, our processes not only remove the material but also clean the tank in a safe manner. Our powerful machines can remove solid or liquid materials and will leave the tank fresh and renewed.


Hydrovac site remediation cleans an area and removes all kinds of debris, sludge, and soil. Our precise processes ensure the site is cleaned in the right manner and that the materials are properly removed. NG’s experienced teams also perform hydrovac bore pit assistance, or removing dirt and debris to create a bore pit for pipes or other utility lines. Using hydrovac in this process moves the boring project along and creates a clean and proper pit for the next steps of the project.


Rail Car

Our versatile hydrovac services can also be used to clean and maintain rail cars. The fully mobile service comes to wherever the rail car is located to clean it for scrap or to return the lease. Hydrovac can also remove dirt and debris from a rail car to make it safe for entry for future use.


Hydrovac rail car services can be used on a variety of types of cars, including tank cars, hopper cars, and gondola cars. The pressurized water can be used on both the interior and exterior of the cars to remove graffiti and other wear and tear. Compared to other methods of cleaning and maintaining rail cars, hydrovac services are by far the fastest and most effective. Manual cleaning methods can be lengthy and mundane, but hydrovac allows the cars to be cleaned and on their way in an efficient manner.
