Dry Well and Parking Lot Drain Cleaning Service
A dry well or catch basin is an underground structure that collects rainwater runoff from driveways and paved surfaces. Long Island and New York Metro Area business owners utilize them to control stormwater and melting snow, keeping overflow away from areas of the property where it could cause costly damages.
A dry well consists of a large, reinforced hole in the ground that is covered by a metal grating. Gravity forces water to flow downward through one or more entry pipes or channels at its top, where it then filters into the surrounding soil and merges with the local groundwater. If leaves or other sediment buildup are clogging the lid or the shaft of the dry well, it’s likely that runoff is being prevented from draining into it. Removing debris can help prevent overflows and pooling of parking lots.
Debris that collects at the bottom of the well can also prevent collected water from filtering off into the soil. It’s important to check your dry well regularly for any standing water. A properly functioning well should be able to process runoff in less than 72 hours. If water remains after a rainfall, it’s a likely indication that your dry well is due for a cleaning.
