Delivering Excellence in Hydro Excavation

We care about adapting to the changing regulatory landscape while continuing to provide the best quality services at the lowest overall cost.

For more than 20 years, Ontario Excavac has provided high-quality, cost-effective services in hydrovac excavation, sub-surface utility mapping, debris removal, and daylighting.  We are located in the GTA, Hamilton, and Barrie areas.

Hydrovac excavation is the go-to approach for safe, fast, and damage-free soil removal using a combination of high-pressure water and high-flow vacuums. Non-mechanical and non-destructive, hydrovac technology is widely recognized for its safety and cost benefits, including the following:

  • Protects underground infrastructure: hydro excavation does not damage buried utility infrastructure
  • Efficient: hydrovac excavation is fast and able to access difficult locations up to 900 feet from our trucks
  • Precise: hydrovac excavation digs precise shapes and depths, minimizing soil removal and environmental impact
  • Cuts restoration time and costs: precise digging limits excavation to what’s needed and requires less backfill
  • Cost-effective: efficiency + precision + low restoration costs = best value and lowest overall excavation costs
  • Year-round excavation: hydrovac excavation keeps going, even on the coldest days of winter
  • Enables safer mechanical digging: hydrovac excavation safely exposes buried infrastructure prior to digging
