ABC Soils has employed vacuum excavation technology to clear out drainage channels. This spares damage that would otherwise be incurred using conventional equipment. For example, ABC Soils cleaned out drainage easements a number of times for the Town of Needham by parking a trailer-mounted vacuum excavator in the roadway and running our hoses along the ground surface to the drainage trench. The vacuum excavator pulled out the sediment and loaded it into dump trucks. The work was done on private properties with no significant disturbance.
