What Are Pellets Used for in Hydro Excavation?

When hydro excavation is done at a construction site, a wood product is used to absorb any excess water during excavations. The wood products, called pellets, are used to solidify the hydro excavation slurry, allowing for a more controlled disposal site. The dried sawdust in the pellets absorbs the water used onsite and turns liquid waste into a movable spoil. With the now-dried spoil, it allows workers to easily haul away the waste and dump it at a waste disposal facility offsite.

Rogers Hydro Vac Services only uses a virgin hardwood pellet that is free of contaminants. These all-natural pellets are ideal for fast absorption and are best suited for disposing waste while leaving a small eco footprint. With our hardwood pellets, workers can spread the spoil out evenly onsite as an organic top cover to regrow grass without the need to wait for strawing and seeding. This takes the time managing the site after the job is completes.
