Enhance your project safely, increase productivity and lower costs as well as risk when exposing buried infrastructure by utilizing Badger Daylighting’s Hydrovac potholing services.

Badger’s versatile method of potholing can create a test hole to expose underground infrastructure, determining the horizontal and vertical location of buried contents.

One example, a directional drilling contractor installed an average of 500’ of conduit per day when using air vacuum excavation to daylight utility conflicts. The same contractor hired Badger to daylight utility conflicts and increased daily production by over 300% (to 2,100’ of installed conduit per day).
