Heavy Civil Construction

Dewatering

Quick Assessment and Implementation

When groundwater infiltration and contamination threatens safety and progress on a heavy civil construction site, Michels has the skills and expertise to quickly assess the situation, design an effective solution and implement it. We use a variety of groundwater control and treatment systems, including dewatering wells, wellpoints, eductors and sumps, to solve all of your groundwater challenges.

Our highly qualified teams have access to a large and varied inventory of pumping equipment as well as drill rigs, jet trucks, one-pass trenchers and support equipment.

Michels also designs and builds bypass pumping systems to temporarily reroute rivers, streams and sewers around active construction sites.

Projects

Michels designed, furnished and installed a siphon system to draw down water elevation in a pond impoundment area and maintain upstream river flow during the removal of a high-risk dam. The system consisted of 14 30-inch HDPE siphons, flow-monitoring meters, stainless steel knife gate valves and a priming system.
