Dewatering is often required on construction projects that involve working below the water table. However, if contamination is present, special expertise is necessary. As less virgin land is available for development, the likelihood of encountering groundwater contamination during construction projects is increasing.
Contaminated groundwater encountered during dewatering generally requires treatment prior to discharge. The extent of this treatment will depend in part on whether the effluent is discharged to surface waters, groundwater or a deep injection well. SCS Engineers has experience with large and challenging construction sites and can extract, treat, and discharge high volumes of water.
Our team of hydrogeologists, licensed professional engineers and geologists, construction experts, and regulatory professionals can provide clear advice based on decades of solving problems for our clients. We have extensive experience with all aspects of dewatering systems for contaminated sites, including:
