Minimal Environmental Impact

One of the reasons hydro-vac and vac truck services have become so popular is because of its environmentally friendly and nondestructive nature. We understand how important it is that you are able to fulfill your landscape needs with as little damage to the surrounding excavation area as possible. Utilizing the services of a vac truck is a great environmentally friendly solution.

Strathcona Excavating has multiple water trucks available to transport large quantities of water. Our units are ready to deliver to plant sites, construction sites, for hydro-testing, and to our hydrovac units which allows them to stay on-site and keep working longer.
