Whether you are preparing a construction site or excavating a new pipeline trench, dewatering is an essential part of the process. The presence of underground water is a major obstacle, adding various unnecessary risks, costs, and delays to the project.
Simply removing the visible groundwater is not always enough, however, as seepage can compromise the stability of the excavation slopes. To ensure that this does not happen, lowering the groundwater levels through pre-drainage is often necessary.

A wellpoint dewatering system is the most versatile form of dewatering, capable of dealing with very low flows from silty sands to large flows from coarse sands and gravels.
The equipment consists of high impact plastic header pipes connected via a push-fit swing connector with control valves to the wellpoint. The disposable plastic wellpoints or wedgewire stainless steel well point screens are installed using an H80 jetting pump or Angus Fire Pump.
