Different Drainage Solutions.
Surface Drainage is the removal of water that collects on the land surface. Surface drainage system consists of shallow ditches and should include land smoothing or land grading. This type of system is suitable for all slowly permeable soils and for soils with Fragipans and clay sub soils
Stormwater pit is a water collection pit or storage container for stormwater. It is not designed to hold all the run off but needs to be large enough to contain the water pouring into it long enough to allow it to drain through the drainage pipes at a rate that keeps up with the flow of water.
Drainage Pit is a dry well, a dry well is underground structure that disposes of unwanted water most commonly surface run off, and stormwater. In some cases grey water a larger open pit and artificial swale that receives storm water and dissipates it into the ground is called an infiltration basin or recharge basin.
Rubble Pit is a trench filled with blue metal gravel and topped with sand to help disperse and remove stormwater. (The pipes from the new addition) connect to the pit with a section of slotted pipe (in the pit) a section of slotted pipe (in the pit) dispersing water through the gravel.
Headwalls or wing walls improve the flow of water into and out of conduits provide anchoring support for the pipe and prevent dislodging under excessive pressures control erosion an scour resulting from high velocities and turbulences and to prevent adjacent soil from sloughing into the water way opening.
End wall The brick, concrete or stonework construction at the sides of an excavation built to carry a flat or arched roof also called sidewall.
A Culvert is a structure that allows water to flow under a road, railroad, trail or similar obstruction from one side to the other side. Typically embedded so as to be surrounded by soil, a culvert may be made from a pipe, reinforced concrete or other materials.
