Dry Wells & Storm Drains

Dry Wells

Installing dry wells underground on homes offer a reliable drainage solution that is both out of sight and out of mind for property owners on Long Island. Dry wells distribute unwanted storm water into the local groundwater and can serve as an outlet for your other drainage solutions such as dry creeks or French drains. Home owners in Nassau and Suffolk county know the hazards of living near the water all too well. These drainage solutions are designed to accept a massive amount of runoff and then store it as it is drained at a reasonable rate into the groundwater so they can serve as an excellent complement to any new or existing drainage solutions you install on your property in Nassau or Suffolk county.

Dry wells can serve as an ideal end-point for run-off and overflowing storm water that is redirected by other drainage systems. Our specialists can recommend a location and size for your dry well after the site inspection. There are typically two types of dry wells that are used. The first is a pit filled with either riprap or gravel. This allows water to be paced as it exits through several small openings at the base of the dry well. The water is also filtered so dangerous contaminants are removed before they enter the groundwater. Dry wells filled with filters have reduced volume capacities for runoff water since they are mostly filled already but they can still function optimally depending on the amount of incoming runoff they receive. The second type of dry well has less filtration but offers more storage capacity for run-off water.

These are especially useful in areas that receive major storms on a regular basis during wet seasons like Nassau and Suffolk county. Large volume dry wells are reinforced with concrete with perforated edges to allow for more efficient water flow. These wells are designed to accept a large amount of water immediately, and then slowly distribute the runoff into the groundwater at an acceptable rate.
