Residential Hydrovac Services

Residential hydrovac excavation services utilize hydrovac trucks to perform non-destructive digging into the ground. This innovative technique uses high-pressure water and an industrial strength vacuum to excavate and remove debris. Since hydrovac excavation is precise, it’s an ideal solution for residential projects that require careful navigation around existing underground utilities, pipes and cables.

If you live in Mississippi or the surrounding areas and need to dig quickly and safely, then hydrovac excavation is the most efficient solution. At Foremost Foundations and Construction, our experts are fully trained to complete any hydrovac excavation job.

Key Features of Residential Hydrovac Excavation


Hydrovac systems can target specific areas with minimal disruption to the surrounding soil, reducing the risk of damaging underground infrastructure. Even fragile underground parts like pipes or cables can be worked around. Due to the method’s accuracy and precision, hydrovac excavation is federally recognized and ensures that projects remain compliant with the latest rules and regulations.


A key benefit of hydrovac excavation is its safety. By using water to break up soil, the risk of hitting and damaging utilities—gas lines, water pipes, electrical cables—is significantly lower compared to traditional mechanical excavation methods. Furthermore, because heavy iron equipment is not used, the risk of damage or injury to operators is much lower.


Hydrovac trucks can also quickly remove soil and debris, speeding up the excavation process and allowing for faster completions. And, there is no need to dig or clean up debris, as everything is hauled away in debris boxes. Hydrovac excavation is also considered more environmentally friendly than traditional excavation techniques because it reduces soil disturbance and the risk of contamination.

What People Are Saying


I Highly Recommend

I highly recommend Steve Folk, Bray Watkins and the entire Foremost team. I hired them because part of my driveway sunk nearly 6 inches at the entrance to the carport. Foremost was able to raise the driveway nearly even, which reduced risk of a blown out tire on our vehicles. Additionally, they installed 13 screwjacks under the house, which was dipping towards the middle and creating a bowl effect. We saw an immediate improvement. Their work and customer service were fantastic!
