Types of Commercial Drainage Solutions
Surface Drains and Catch Basins
Due to the flat coastal terrain, storm water will typically pool after a large rainstorm. We use low spots as natural funnels to collect water in surface drains and catch basins. These drainage solutions connect to underground pipes to carry water to designated areas.
Foundation Drains and Retaining Wall Drains
Foundation drains are exactly what they sound like. They are installed drains around the perimeter of a building or home that is used to collect excess groundwater near the foundation and convey the water far away from the structure. Retaining wall drains serve a similar purpose are crucial for keeping the integrity of the wall in place. Otherwise, the weight of the soil would case the wall to fail.
Channel Drains and Trench Drains
Channel drains and trench drains are a great way to collect water around the sidewalks and driveways. This is especially important if the driveway and sidewalk is sloped towards the building. Excess storm water around hardscapes can cause premature settling and lead to trip hazards and structural failures. Business Owners and HOAs will want to consider the safety of residents and patrons when evaluations potential drainage problems.
Other available drainage solutions consist of French drains, gravity drain and pump system, infiltration and on-site storm water systems, dry wells, swales, and regrading. As you evaluate different drainage solutions, there are plenty of resources out there to learn from. One helpful article that pertains to various drainage solutions that we found interesting is from HD Foundations, INC.
