Dewatering in Miami Dade County and/or Broward County can be challenging. We typically design a well point system and discharge into a sedimentation tank. The discharge must be free and clean. DERM requires the effluent to be under 29 NTU’s.
The most challenging part of a dewatering system is the project location. Owners, Architects and developers are not always aware how adjacent properties can impact construction activities.
Dewatering draws groundwater from the adjacent areas. If you are near a contaminated site the discharge may be impacted and require additional treatment prior to disposal.
Give us a call if you need to develop a dewatering plan and permit in South Florida.
