Dry Well Construction

 

Construction of a Dry Well is outlined below:

 

1.  This is the initial excavation.  Drainage lines are drawn and
excavation is underway.  Soil is removed and the trench is cut.
 


2.  Construction of the Dry Well.  This will be come a large garbage
can size hole that will measure over 4' deep by 4' wide.  This is
the reservoir where rainwater will ultimately drain too from the
downspouts and sump pump.

 

3. As you can see all trench lines are cut straight for improved flow

of runoff.  All removed soil is temporarily placed on plywood to

not disturb unaffected grass/sod in the process.  PLEASE NOTE: 

Take notice to yellow colored flags in the background.  All sites

are marked by JULIE to ensure that underground utilities are

marked.  This ensures worker safety.

 


4. River rock installation.  The Dry Well has been constructed and
is now being back filled with rock.  This will give the Well
structure and allow for retention of runoff. 

 


5. The 4" pipe has been installed and is now back filled with dirt
and leveled for sod installation.
 


6. An example of a connection from downspout to main drain
line away from the house.

 


7. Sod has been installed over trench and has been watered. 
Grass seed applied
.

 


8. Problem areas around foundation addressed.  Dirt installation
to promote runoff away from the house foundation.
