Groundwater can impact the safety and delay the progress of a construction project. Michels Construction, Inc. has the skills and expertise to quickly assess any groundwater control situation, design an efficient solution, and implement it. We design and build bypass pumping systems to temporarily reroute rivers, streams, and sewers around active construction sites.

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