Construction dewatering treatment systems are used for dewatering the flow rate and is a process that is used to both extract and remove the groundwater or surface water from a construction site. This treatment is necessary for different types of construction projects and professional dewatering contractors are the only ones who can perform this temporary water treatment. Anytime elevator shafts are being built, bridge piers are being constructed or sub-surface parking structures are being built dewatering treatment systems will be required to help complete the construction project effectively, safely and successfully.
The exact process includes the installation of dewatering treatment equipment around the perimeter of the construction site to allow groundwater extraction. The purpose of the treatment is to draw down the surface water until contractors reach soil that is dry. The system will continue pumping the groundwater until the project can be constructed and temporary water treatment systems normally stay intact for about two to three weeks to ensure the structure will not float and prevent any leaks.
Dewatering treatment systems are also used when contractors need pumps to extract and remove any contaminated water from the underground. Groundwater is often contaminated with bacteria and effective treatment is required; otherwise, construction on that site cannot start. Excavation must be performed before the construction phase because this will help determine the type of groundwater and whether it’s clean or contaminated. If the water is clean, it can be discharged immediately but if it is contaminated, then treatment will be required before discharge, and dewatering contractors will have to be present.
Dewatering is important for a number of reasons and will affect the success of a jobsite. Without excavating and removing it, you will not be able to perform many of the tasks safely, which is why you must select experienced and reliable dewatering contractors to ensure they follow all of the laws, rules and regulations required to perform a dewatering plan without negatively affecting the environment. Before designing a plan, you must consider all of the factors associated with it because dewatering issues do vary from place to place and an effective dewatering treatment system must be installed accordingly so that the site can produce the best results. In addition to a perfect plan, the right equipment must also be selected to fulfill all of the necessary requirements.
Construction dewatering treatment systems can be purchased and are also available for rent. They have a number of applications for which they can be used including but not limited to construction, industrial wastewater, infrastructure improvements and repairs, portable water development and manufacturing.
