Commercial Drainage Systems

Commercial Drainage Systems

This is an example of a new commercial construction project that has built several bioswales in its parking lot as part of its storm drainage system to reduce rainwater pollutants from entering American waters.

Extra Strength Pipe

Extra Strength Pipe

This is a close-up view of the special stamp that is embossed on extra strength vitrified clay (VCP) sewer pipe. You will also notice the grainier surface of the pipe material. Regular VCP has a smoother surface.

Clay Sewer Pipe

Clay Sewer Pipe

This is a piece of extra strength clay sewer pipe with the bell shaped end exposed. This pipe was specifically manufactured with more durable properties than the regular vitrified clay pipe (VCP).

VCP Sewer Pipe

VCP Sewer Pipe

Here is a VCP sewer pipe installation being connected to a PVC plastic sewer pipe cleanout. Usually, on private property, sewer pipe is converted from clay to plastic material. You will notice that the sewer pipe has two different ends.

Storm Drain Improvements

Storm Drain Improvements

Public works projects usually take place in the public right-of-ways, in street or highways, and in this case involve excavation for storm drain installation. Traffic control measures are necessary to maintain healthy flow of traffic and prevent backups.

Sand

This 48" reinforced concrete pipe (RCP) is being transported on a public works construction site for installation in the street to upgrade a city's current storm drainage systems.

Shield Safety

Shield Safety

Construction shields are used in pipeline construction to hold up the sides of a trench prior to pipe installation. This will ensure the safety of construction pipeline workers by preventing a trench to cave-in.

Asphalt Grindings
