Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE) is an engineering process that identifies the quality of subsurface information. Utility locates using vacuum excavation for example, are the engineers preferred approach to advance projects safely and cost effectively. 

In the past, the inability to attain reliable underground utility information was a significant problem for highway designers in the United States prior to vacuum excavation equipment. Fast forward to today and vacuum excavation technology is the industry standard and a requirement for highway planning and development. It results in higher levels of efficiency in the development and completion of major infrastructure projects.

From a safety perspective, highway engineers recognize the importance of exposing subsurface utilities before beginning any excavation. Unfortunately, the only known way to do this prior to vacuum excavation was to dig a trench with a backhoe. Utilizing this method, utilities were damaged, resulting in delays, cost overruns, and sometimes injuries. The use of vacuum excavation to expose utilities is simply the most effective and responsible process available today.
