Dewatering Companies For Water Treatment

How Dewatering Companies Resolve Construction Challenges Related To Water Treatment?

It is essential to understand the role of dewatering in the safety and success of the majority of the job sites. However, it can also pose different challenges that depend on the type of job site. These challenges include, but are not limited to, the location where the water discharges, selection of proper pump for the application, controlling and managing job site water with limited space, and ensuring compliance of relevant regulations including the ones that are set by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Here is how dewatering contractors resolve construction challenges related to water treatment:

Checklist Of Pump Application And Equipment

The first thing you would want to consider is to ensure that your dewatering contractors make use of all the right pump applications and equipment. The contractors must be professional and know how to prepare pump application checklist such as suction lift, required capacity, and discharge head at the job site. It is important to measure the required capacity which is the amount of fluid needed to be moved at a certain rate. This is measured in gallons per minute. On the other hand, it is critical for the suction lift to overcome the vertical distance to allow the fluid enter the pump while discharge head is the vertical height of discharge pipe. The dewatering company has to evaluate and calculate all these factors to determine which application would suit best for your dewatering needs. The results will answer the following:

  1. The type of pump required to effectively resolve the issue at hand
  2. The type of liquid that will be pumped
  3. If the liquid has any solid matter or not
  4. The amount of fluid to be pumped
  5. The rate at which the liquid needs to be moved
  6. The job site location where the pump will be placed
  7. The job site location where the liquid will be discharged
  8. If the chosen application requires infiltration

Types Of Pumps

There are different types of pumps available in the market that are specially designed to cater your individual needs. From low pressure to high pressure and highly versatile to specialized, the pump capabilities differ. Depending on the type, some are better when it comes to pumping fluid vertically whereas other work well for circulating water with debris. There are some types that may clog under these condition and provide poor results. Similarly, the cost also varies on the basis of type of the pump. For instance, if you are looking for a pump that moves solid matter as well, they will be priced higher than others. With dewatering companies, you do not have to worry about the type of pumps as they are experts and know which type is best suited for what condition.


Majority of the pumps for water treatment are either trailer mounted, or skid mounted. The first type is an easily portable pump however it tends to occupy more space when working with it on job site. Thus, if your job site does not have additional space, you will struggle to work with a trailer mounted pump. The primary job site challenges include finding locations where you would want to collect and discharge fluids. It is important to select the location where the fluid is discharged carefully. Make sure your dewatering contractor complies with the EPA regulations.
