Water Drainage & Septic Removal SpecialistsContact Us
Water Drainage systems in Nassau County are older structures typically. They are built closer together because a lot of storm drain systems are older in the Nassau County area. The Nassau County Drainage System was developed before Suffolk County's was. Although, there has been plenty of new development with modern Commercial & Industrial Drainage Systems in the County of Nassau. A dry well is part of a drainage system. Old dry wells can be made of block like old cesspools. Some are in fact cesspools that were converted to drywells after the Nassau County connected to sewers in most areas.
Suffolk County Drainage within dry wells are typically large capacity wrapped in filter cloth. They are spread out because there is more land available in areas of Suffolk that we service such as Melville & Hauppauge. There are older drywells in Suffolk County because there were cities and towns that are as old as parts of Nassau County. Some of the Drainage systems consisting of Storm Drains on Long Island are connected to Sumps or Recharge Basins. These Recharge Basins are found on the sides of highways and Expressways to dissipate Storm Water in conjunction with a dry well system or catch basin drainage system. Murphy's Cesspool & Septic Service Specializes in Commercial & Industrial drainage.
Dry wells are drainage structures that leach rainwater from parking lots, roads, buildings, roof water, bridges, a house roof, or driveway into the ground. Home drainage system with dry wells can also be utilized to leach laundry water into the ground. The drainage system can consist of a precast concrete ring or multiple rings depending on the capacity needed or the depth which is needed to reach good sand for sufficient drainage. This is defined as a dry well. These precast rings are made in different diameters that also effect drainage capacity. On top of the precast ring or rings there is a top which can be a dome or a slab with a smaller access hole in it. That hole is covered with either a steel manhole cover and brought to grade for access or a concrete cover that is buried below ground. If the cover is below ground, it will eventually need to be accessed at some point in it's life for maintenance by a company that can handle the Industrial & Commercial drainage repairs.
Dry wells are very similar to a cesspool with two key differences in drainage. One difference is obviously that waste water it's being used to leach. The second difference is in the way they are maintained regularly. This is especially predominant in Melville & Hauppauge areas of Suffolk County Long Island. The Dry wells receive garbage, bottles, foliage, sand, salt, car parts, animals, concrete, bricks, and anything that rain water can flush into a drainage system. This can build thick layers of garbage on the bottom which can quickly backup the drainage system and start flooding issues. Drainage systems require a specific type of industrial vacuum truck to service these drainage systems. These trucks can suck up concrete blocks, bricks, dry dirt, and heavy mud a few feet thick. They are very expensive, and complicated machines that require a lot of maintenance coupled with knowledge to keep them running. Cesspools require a different type of custom vacuum truck to service cesspool and septic system drainage issues as well as grease traps. These trucks suck water, floating scum, and sludge from the bottom. Some cesspool trucks can reverse their pump to blow air in a utilize the process called aeration. Parking lots can have one dry well or a thousand dry wells within their Drainage system depending on the catchment area of Nassau or Suffolk County. There are formulas we use to design drainage systems that consider catchment area and rainfall. On Long Island drainage systems mainly begin with dry wells which are a very common way for industrial, commercial business, and municipalities to manage rain water runoff usually in combination with a system of catch basins. Some roadways, buildings, apartment complexes, home developments utilize sumps to retain then leach very large amounts of water in areas of Melville & Hauppauge Long Island. Sumps can be used in conjunction with drywells, catch basins, and other types of drainage systems.
