High snowfalls contribute to high water levels

NCS Fluid Handling Systems Well Point Dewatering

NCS Fluid Handling Systems Well Point Dewatering

This picture depicts the high water table in an excavation, and the benefits of a well designed and installed well point or sand point dewatering system.

When excavations are required to extend beyond the ground water table, site dewatering is required. The highly skilled technicians and project managers at NCS Fluid Handling Systems are supported by system designers, project planners and a strong supplier network that allows the NCS team to respond safely and quickly.

Some of our energy sector and municipal infrastructure contractors are benefiting from onsite well point dewatering systems. Given the wet spring and higher-than-normal snow falls in AB and regions around the lower mainland (like Hope, Chilliwack or Abbotsford, BC), the ground water and water table situation is higher than normal and the decision has been made to well point dewater excavations rather than face schedule delays or related penalties due to late startup.

For shallow excavations, single-stage well point dewatering is often the most effective and cost-efficient method to draw down water levels. For deeper excavations, a second stage can be installed or alternatively a deep well system can be employed, allowing for safe and timely excavation to continue.
