Safe Water Management
Water remediation is an often overlooked but extremely important consideration in any landscaping or construction project. In many cases, your city or Township will require a water management solution as part of landscaping improvement projects, new home construction or additions.
Dry wells are a common solution for storm water management. They are underground structures made to dispose of storm water runoff. Water from a dry well is fed into the ground, where it merges with the local groundwater. Simple dry wells consist of a covered pit filled with gravel, rubble, or other debris.
When designing a dry well, several factors are considered:
- Anticipated volume of storm water
- Drainage area feeding the dry well
- Characteristics of the drainage surfaces (concrete, asphalt, grass, dirt)
- Depth and local use of groundwater
