What Is Dewatering?

Dewatering is the process used to remove ground or surface water from tunnels, construction sites, and more. It allows the soil to dry before excavation. Excess water is removed from the ground’s surface or underground, which firms the soil. When done right, dewatering will prevent upheaval failure and soil erosion.

How Does It Work?

The dewatering process can be accomplished in numerous ways. However, the easiest of all methods is the gravity drain approach. The water is carried away from the site using drainage channels to be handled at the discharge point.

Other dewatering methods are syphoning, water pumping, or utilizing construction machinery to pick up and cast aside water from a specified area. The general framework of dewatering follows a simple four-step process: The collection of water, the pumping of water, filtering the water to remove contaminants, and dispensing the water at the proper location.

Dewatering Methods

Dewatering is pivotal in various industries, like mining and construction, where water presence can significantly impact operations.

Dewatering in Mining

In the mining sector, managing water is a double-edged sword. Water is indispensable for numerous operational processes, but excess water can hinder mining activities. Effective mine dewatering strategies serve dual purposes: they not only facilitate the reclamation of process water for reuse, enhancing environmental sustainability and reducing costs but also ensure the removal of surplus water from mining pits.

Dewatering is crucial for uninterrupted excavation, ensuring worker safety, and maintaining high productivity levels. A well-thought-out, adaptable, and reliable dewatering plan is fundamental to providing a consistent supply of process water and managing excess water efficiently throughout mining operations.

Construction Dewatering

In the construction industry, water is often viewed as a problematic element. Its presence can lead to damage, slow down production, and inflate costs, particularly on commercial and industrial building sites. Following rainstorms, construction sites frequently require dewatering to resume building activities promptly.

Effective construction site dewatering is vital for minimizing downtime and ensuring the timely progress of construction projects. By implementing robust dewatering techniques, construction sites can mitigate water-related challenges, safeguarding the structural integrity of ongoing projects and the financial investments involved.
