Concrete Storm Drain Structure

A concrete storm drain structure is rather nondescript in appearance, but serves an important duty. The bulk of these structures are primarily hidden underground or protected by embankments. Visible parts include curb inlets and street gutters which are positioned along sidewalks and roadways.

Areas without a concrete storm drain structure are often plagued by flooding any time it rains. Storm drains are designed to pull excess water into the system by means of gravity. City streets and parking lots are built with slight elevation so water will naturally flow into systems.

Storm Water Drain Construction

Storm water drain construction plays a vital role in public safety. Storm drains are needed to manage water flow that occurs after rain or snow storms. Water is transported swiftly through a series of underground pipes so that is does not accumulate on ground surfaces and result in flooding.

Storm water drain construction is performed by licensed contractors who have been trained in Environmental Protection Agency wastewater management practices. The EPA monitors all types of pipeline that release water into American waters.

Sewer Pipeline

Sewer pipeline is probably one of the oldest types of pipeline systems in existence. Usage of this type of pipeline has been traced back to thousands of centuries. Archaeological excavations have unearthed many such systems made of orange colored clay such as that of timeless pottery pieces. Today, this same orange colored clay pipe material is still the most commonly used for sewage related pipeline construction. This is because of its ability to withstand disintegration from strong acids such as those in harsh chemicals and other liquid pollutants that would otherwise eat through any other type of pipe material.

Originally, these sewer pipe systems were used to irrigate crops using gravity-fed water from local rivers. Not all pipes were cast in a circular shape. In fact, some pipes were cast into a square shapes, with the top part of the pipe open and exposed. These pipes were used to carry away human waste product.

S.U.E.

Subsurface Utility Engineering (S.U.E.) is in a nutshell, vacuum utility potholing and private utility locating. S.U.E. tasks essentially involve pre-design investigative processes of vertical and horizontal locations under the ground. These processes allow topside investigation of existing utilities in order to verify whether a proposed new utility or utility pipeline installation in that area would be feasible.

Many consider S.U.E. to be the damage prevention solution to consulting engineers. S.U.E. helps ensure that there are no underground utility conflicts once plans are approved and underground pipeline construction has begun. As the saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. So goes S.U.E., in preventing underground utility conflicts in the design and preconstruction phase of any new construction project.

Concrete Storm Drain Construction

Concrete storm drain construction is a specialty field that necessitates learning specific skill sets. This type of work involves the understanding and reading of civil plans, and then installing these underground pipeline systems that eliminate storm water runoff.

Concrete storm drain construction offers a variety of job opportunities ranging from administrative duties to field work. Although many positions require a college degree, there are jobs for high school graduates as well.

Storm Drain Chambers

Did you know that storm drain chambers can process millions of gallons of water per day? It's hard to believe these compact half-domed plastic pipe halves can convey so much water volume, but they can.

It's a good thing storm drain chambers are so efficient. Otherwise, people would spend a good part of their day dealing with flooding every time it rained or snow began to melt. Instead, civil engineers developed systems that can effectively and efficiently make good use of excess water through a series of these unique underground pipes.

Storm Drain Catch Basins

Did you know storm drain catch basins have been in use since ancient times? Long ago, early civilizations used drainage systems to collect water for their crops prior to dry seasons, as well as to safeguard crops from flooding during rainy seasons.

Although storm drain catch basins have evolved and are no longer used for crop irrigation, they are still used to protect communities against flooding. Without these drainage systems cities and towns would be underwater or constantly dealing with flood management.

Concrete Storm Drain Contractors

Concrete storm drain contractors perform work related to private and public-owned storm drainage systems. While much of their work is performed behind the scenes, contractors play an important role in protecting America's communities.

Working with experienced concrete storm drain contractors is essential. This is especially true with municipal projects that affect entire cities and towns. Drainage systems are necessary to remove melted snow and storm water from city and residential streets, parking lots and garages, and other ground surfaces.

Commercial Sewer Contractors

Commercial sewer contractors specialize in the installation and maintenance of subsurface utility pipeline infrastructure. The jobs they perform are typically on a much larger scale than residential projects and require use of specialty equipment such as heavy duty excavation machinery.

Commercial sewer contractors perform work on underground sewer systems, storm water drainage systems, and water pipeline. These types of jobs are categorized as "wet" utility construction. Design blueprints for commercial construction are usually created by civil engineers and require contractors with specialized licenses to comply with state and federal guidelines.

Benefits of Safety Meetings in Construction

Have you considered the benefits of holding safety meetings? When was the last time you held one at your construction company? Who do you think should attend these meetings and how often do you think you should hold a safety meeting? Here's a story to set the stage in showing how important safety meetings can be:

A group of ten people stand in a circle. One person whispers to another person a certain construction safety rule that makes it mandatory for a ladder to be within twenty five feet of any worker in a water pipeline trench deeper than five feet. The person who heard the rule then turns and whispers it to the next person and so forth until each person has heard the safety rule. Can you imagine what the final translation of this rule will be at the end of the tenth person? Probably something to the effect of twenty five ladders for every five workers in an excavator. The point is that it can be very easy for workers to get false or misleading information in the field. This is why it is so important to make time routinely to hold safety meetings where all workers can get together and communicate.
