While Auckland sleeps, parts of our HydroVac team leap into action, making the most of the quiet to work under the cover of dark! One night last week, team leader Brent Murphy and his team spent the midnight hours cleaning out sediment in a vault — this involved using our trucks to suck out all the debris that had settled onto the floor: inorganic materials, pine needles and more. It was up to 150mm high off the floor! They also cleaned out motorway storm filters — very important at this time of the year when lots of rain can cause flooding if they’re not clear.
The best bit about these jobs is that you can really see the difference in the before and after – very satisfying! If you’d like to be a part of a great team, doing work where you can see the difference, check out the careers page on our website — we’d love to hear from you.
