Daylighting refers to the exposure and uncovering of underground utilities using hydrovac excavation techniques. Pipelines, wires and other sensitive utilities may need to be exposed and located prior to conventional excavation; daylighting provides this option. It increases Hydrovac Services productivity of workers and safety by allowing clear viewing and working access to the utilities.
Daylighting in particular works well for the exposure of utilities in delicate areas where there may be utility line congestion. This nondestructive method of exposing utilities and other lines greatly reduces the chance of rupturing underground pipes compared to hand digging. Daylighting is just one of the many services we offer at Alberta Hydrovac, using hydrovac in Edmonton.
With the use of hydrovac, this is a nondestructive process and greatly reduces the chance of bursting underground pipelines compared to hand or mechanical digging.
