Groundwater Management go hand in hand to keep the water out of your house. or off your property, while trying to put the
water into the Aquifer where it belongs.
You need to hire a contractor who
Understands Drainage and Groundwater Management.Dont just Trust the word of Engineers and Building Inspectors. What MIGHT
look good on paper, may NOT work, (I quoted a job that was designed and approved,at a million dollar home,I didnt get the
job because I told them it wouldnt work. The first time it rained, they got 3 feet of water in the Finished basement
and neither the inpector or engineer could be held liable)
provide Grading, French Drains,Berms,Footing Drains.Daylight Drains.Gutter/leader drains
With the Experience and Know-how of Groundwater Management can help prevent water from entering your home or
business and thus preventing flooding and Mold
We have been successful
at jobs where the Sump Pump or multiple sump pumps ran continuously for years. The home owners said if they had known how
much money they would have saved on the electric bill, they would have called me sooner
Grading: slope the landscape to force water away from your house,property or business
French Drain: Trench with pipe at the bottom and backfilled with clean stone, catches water and diverts it away
from your home and into the ground where it belongs and additional water to a lower area or into storm drain or catch basin,
Daylight Drain: a pipe lower than the area to be drained, backfilled with
clean stone, running out to an area which is lower, and the end of the pipe exposed to daylight. note; daylight drains are
required for most New Construction or additions, Most cases the builder will put in the pipe when foundation is inspected
and approved. BUT is totally USELESS if the foundation is not backfilled with CLEAN stone. Most builders backfill with dirt,
because its free.
Berm: a raised area used to deflect water away from your
house or property, possibly in combination with a Daylight or French Drain
Pond: an area lower than the area you dont want water collecting in. to catch the water and let it seep into the ground. allowing
water to get into the aquifer.
Seepage Pit: is a perforated tank (has holes
in it) that collects the ground water from gutters and footing drains and allows it to seep into the ground and aquifer.note;
seepage pit must be at the lowest point of drainage,and equiped with an overflow, or else when it fills up it will backflow
into the drainage and cause flooding, and defeat its original purpose.
