Who We Are

A Team of Professionals

Priority Excavating is a team of professionals who are committed to your site utilities. We go below the ground to provide Central Iowa communities with water main, sanitary sewer, and storm sewer drainage.

Owner Toby Torstenson opened Priority’s doors in 2004. Toby grew up in Waukee and currently resides there with his wife and children. The Torstensons have a history in the pipe business, starting with Toby’s grandfather, Eldon Torstenson, and then his dad, Ted Torstenson, both of whom had their own plumbing companies. The Torstensons are many generations of self-starters and business owners.

Toby has a passion for the power of machines. His business thrives on challenges, and each and every day poses a new challenge that his team strives to overcome. High-quality production fuels the passion to excel during many difficult and challenging jobs. The dedicated employees at Priority drive the company success year after year. We tackle each project with a hands-on approach, and we pride ourselves on being responsive to all client needs and expectations.

With close to a million linear feet of pipe laid on over 250 projects in 13 different Central Iowa communities, you can trust our team’s expertise for your next project.

Our current office is located in Clive, a convenient central hub for all of Central Iowa.
