Hydro Excavation Services

Hydro excavation is a safe and reliable method that uses pressurized water and vacuum to remove soil on excavation projects.

If you perform trenching, pot-holing for directional drilling, utility locating or any work that requires excavating, you’ll be interested in learning more about our hydro excavation services. Conventional methods of digging holes require shovels, bobcats, backhoes and bulldozers, all of which risk damage to hidden services.

Our state of the art equipment eliminates the risk of damaging existing underground infrastructures such as fiber optic cables, sewer pipes, gas lines, and/or other utilities. Hydro-Excavation is safer, more precise and requires less labor than traditional excavating methods.

Storm Drain in the road filling with water

Storm Sewer / Water

Storm sewers and catch basins are the underground pipes and pits that create the infrastructure for storm water collection and management.

These essential facilities are found alongside roads, parking lots, and other impermeable surfaces to control the flow of rain water during rainfall events. As rainwater collects onto these surfaces, dirt, grit, sand, and other debris are washed into the catch basins and flow down the storm sewer.

Storm water is ultimately discharged into a retention basin, creek, river, or other location. While most of the storm pipes connecting the catch basins to the discharge area are designed to self clean, it is fairly routine for the pipes and catch basin to be maintained with vacuum cleaning, and high pressure water jetting.

We provide both of these services together or separate with our fleet of Combination Sewer Jet Vacs. As necessary, we will also arrange transportation and disposal of any waste or debris collected in our Roll-Off Trucks and Containers.

Since storm water run off is now known to be a major source of non-point source pollution, new regulations and system designs often require routine cleaning. Motor oil, industrial lubricants, solid waste and other contaminants are often found in catch basins and retention areas that used to manage stormwater flow. Proper care and maintenance of this important infrastructure is vital to your real estate investment and the protection of our environment.

an Oil Water Separator

Oil Water Separators

Designed for the removal of oil from wastewater, oil water separators are part of the sewer infrastructure that require periodic cleaning and maintenance.

Russell Reid supplies complete oil water separator cleaning including the removal, transportation and disposal of oily wastewater, grit, and solids. Routine maintenance prevents oil from escaping the separator into the sanitary sewer, and causing excessive buildup of grit and sludge. Not what you’re looking for?

Oil water separators can be located in ground or above ground and come in countless sizes and configurations. Russell Reid has the expertise and experience to evaluate oil water separator systems and supply efficient cleaning and responsible disposal.

Oily wastewater, grit and sludge is removed from the separator using vacuum trucks, and if necessary high pressure water jetting may be included to scour and clean the inlet, outlet, and other separator components. Wastewater is transported to an appropriate oily wastewater treatment facility for recycling. To view this process click here

Pumping Station

Pump Station

Pump stations, ejector pits, and lift stations all refer to the same type of basic system: a series of electric pumps, floats and valves located in a pit or well to move wastewater from one place to another.

These systems are usually part of a wastewater system where liquids must be pumped to a high elevation. At this point, the sewerage can flow by gravity or under pressure to a sanitary sewer collection system; or in some cases it can flow to a septic drain field. Not what you’re looking for?

Pump station systems require occasional cleaning and maintenance. In these cases, we offer a combination service of high pressure jet washing and wastewater pumping to remove grease and solids from the floats, pumps, walls and floor of the station where this material often accumulates. The service is provided as a preventative maintenance or in many cases, on an emergency basis.

We also provide a standby service, where a vacuum truck will pump all wastewater flowing into the pit, if the pumps are broken down or in disrepair. This may be supplied on an emergency basis or while the pumps are being repaired, replaced, or both.

Manhole cover that says sanitary sewer

Sanitary Sewer

A sanitary sewer collection system begins with the smaller pipes found in commercial, residential and industrial buildings that connect the toilets, sinks, showers, and drains.

We supply the equipment and expertise to pump, clean, and maintain sanitary sewer systems and pump stations. Our combination sewer Jet Vacs and High Pressure Sewer Jetting trucks are designed for pumping and cleaning residual waste from sewer infrastructure. In some cases, routine maintenance may require transportation and disposal or OSHA approved confined space entry for difficult to access system components. Not what you’re looking for?

These smaller pipes are connected to larger, underground pipes that send the flow of wastewater out of the building and into a larger system. This series of pipes carries wastewater to a septic system or large plant for treatment.

As the pipes get larger on the way, there may be mechanical pumps which are used to bring the wastewater from lower elevations to higher elevations. The mechanical pumps, also known as pump stations, ejector pits, or lift stations, are located inside or outside of buildings; these are owned by privately or publicly.

Together, these components make up the sanitary sewer system infrastructure. As with any infrastructure, routine maintenance is required to keep the system in good working order.

Russell Reid Jet Vac Trucks field work

Jet Vac

Jet-Vacs are dual purpose trucks having both pumping and jetting capabilities.

They are used in municipal, commercial and industrial applications for vacuum cleaning of lift stations, ejector pits, storm sewers, catch basins, and others where heavy grit, sediment, sludge and other semi-solid and wet solid removal is needed.

This machine is also used for low pressure, high water volume cleaning of pipes from 8” to 60” in diameter. The hydraulically driven dumping debris body is ideal for dumping solids into dewatering or roll off containers. Russell Reid’s Jet- Vac equipment combines a very powerful vacuum with a high-pressure water jetting system which operates up to 3000 PSI (pounds per square inch).

This equipment allows for thorough removal of solids and semi solids from lift stations, manholes, storm sewers, catch basins and other similar environments.
