Wellpoint Dewatering

Site Drainage & Wellpoint Dewatering

Pumps are the heart of a construction dewatering project

Each construction site is unique and requires a thoughtful approach, depending upon water level, permeability of the soil and required pumping distance.

Site drainage is a necessary part of nearly every construction project. Depending upon the location, some sites may require dewatering 24/7 pumping when the water table below ground is higher than the excavation. On these sites the water level can then be lowered to create a safe, dry environment for excavation using wellpoint pumps and piping.
Xylem’s application experts can help you determine the type of pump(s) needed, whether it's an automatic self-priming pump, rotary lobe wellpoint pump or a submersible dewatering pump.

Xylem not only provides pumps, we also design the systems and piping, provides power, installs the equipment and takes care of it. We will ensure that you:
