Construction Site Dewatering & Tunneling

Construction dewatering is not an option

It's a vital part of the construction process 

Digging ever-deeper tunnels, dealing with high water tables, repairing water main breaks and moving wastewater is part of the construction process. Xylem's pumps provide exceptional value for lowering water tables, dewatering groundwater, or draining storm waters from your site. With dependable products and services, you can rely on Xylem for:

  • Bentonite slurry pumping
  • Emergency floodwater drainage
  • Face and stage dewatering
  • Jetting
  • Site drainage and wellpoint dewatering
  • Stream diversions

It’s a reality that the majority of construction sites require dewatering pumps. Sometimes the pumps remain after your job is completed. Groundwater from the surrounding area, as well as, rain can flood the whole site if not dealt with properly. In addition, excavation below the water table can create the opportunity for water to enter the site. Xylem understands the battle you face on a daily basis, and is there with you for the duration of your construction dewatering needs.
