What is Daylighting?

Some people call it Potholing, others call it Daylighting. Daylighting is a term used to describe the non-destructive locating and exposing of underground utilities and pipelines to daylight, hence the term daylighting.

Traditionally, the uncovering of buried lines has been completed by hand digging and, more recently, by air vacuum excavation. Badger Daylighting’s hydrovac excavation process is a non-destructive alternative that offers some compelling advantages over traditional methods.

Daylighting underground facilities is the primary hydrovac excavation application, but it’s not the only way Badger can add value to projects. Click here to learn about other common hydrovac applications.
