SUMP & STORM SEWER
A storm sewer is designed to drain excess rain and groundwater from impervious surfaces. They range in size from small residential dry wells to large municipal storm sewer systems.
A sump or catch basin is a low space into which water seepage flows. A sump pump is sometimes used to move water from inside a building to the outside, or from a deeper point on a property to a higher one.
Common Sewer Line Problems
- Pipes crushed by excessive weight
- Tree and plant roots that bock the flow of water
- Sagging or shifting that misaligns pipe segments
- Pipes punctured by debris that obstructs water flow
- Old or outdated pipes that have reached the end of their lifespan
If you suspect your storm sewer line may be damaged, we can help you by assessing the problem. We have the equipment to excavate damaged pipe, and we can facilitate the repair or replacement of sewer lines of all types.
Storm Drain Installation
J&R has the expertise to install a variety of storm drain systems for residential, commercial, and industrial applications.
The following are just a few of the drainage solutions we offer:
- Foundation or footing drains collect water that runs off the roof or groundwater through the soil surrounding a building’s foundation.
- Catch basins, or storm drain inlets, collect water and catch sediment before the water is directed away from your property.
- A French drain is a sloped trench filled with gravel and perforated PVC pipe that diverts water away from a building or area where there is pooling.
Gutters & Drainpipes
- Properly installed gutters and drainpipes divert water away from buildings and lessens the amount of groundwater the permitter drainage needs to handle.
