DR Hydro About Us.jpg

About Us

DR Hydrovac provides non-destructive daylighting of pipelines and other underground infrastructure. This is achieved by the use of a combination of high pressure water and a powerful vacuum to remove soil cover.

We are known for our efficient, safe and on‑time services. Our operators are professional, knowledgeable and eager to help you get your job done with the highest level of quality.

Mission Statement

DR Hydrovac’s mission is to promote safety and productivity, while establishing, developing and maintaining successful customer relationships.

Our Story

DR Hydrovac started in 1999 as DR Oilfield Services with a single vacuum truck. From there DR Hydrovac was born. Today we are a fleet of tri-drive hydrovac trucks.

DR Hydrovac has been providing hydrovac services since 2004, to customers in Drumheller, Three Hills, Strathmore and surrounding areas. Having outgrown our original shop near Rosebud, Alberta, we began operations in our current facility in Strathmore, Alberta, in 2010. We stick close to our roots, continuing to provide office and maintenance support from our shop in Strathmore.

DR Hydrovac is privately owned and has become one of Alberta’s leaders in hydrovac excavation in our more than 23 years of providing service. Our key to success is in our ability to build and maintain loyal relationships with our clients, and in recruiting and mentoring the best operators possible.
