What is Construction Dewatering?

“Dewatering” is a term typically used to describe the process of extraction and removal of groundwater or surface water from a construction site. Typically performed by dewatering contractors for a project site, the process of dewatering plays an important role in many Construction projects that involve excavation below the static groundwater level for construction of sub-surface parking structures, bridge caisson/piers, elevator shafts, ect. This process consists of groundwater extraction at the site with the installation of dewatering wells around the perimeter of the site by “drawing down” the groundwater level until a steady, dry state of the soil is reached allowing excavation and construction site work activities to progress.

Dewatering at a site often involves the use of pumps. The groundwater that is recovered from a dewatering project site is often contaminated with various contaminants of concern and requires treatment of the contaminated groundwater for temporary or long-term construction water treatment systems prior to discharge into the storm drain.
