There are times during the construction process when you need to dewater an area, but the water needs to continue flowing. When this situation arises, utilizing a bypass pump in combination with a cofferdam is the perfect solution. The pump redirects water through a diversion pipe, keeping the construction site free of water. A bypass pump allows water to flow while avoiding the dry work site. Click To Tweet
Cofferdams: The Top Dewatering Solution
A cofferdam is an essential tool when you need a dry workspace for your construction project. Cofferdams can prove a vital dewatering solution for many projects, such as:
- Boat ramp repair and construction
- Bridges and Dams
- Shoreline reconstruction
- Sediment control
- Pipeline construction
- Canal and culvert work
- Concrete repair
While some of the construction projects listed above can be completed with the use of a cofferdam only, there are times when the water needs to continue flowing while the repairs are taking place. In these instances, a bypass pump in conjunction with your Aqua-Barrier® Cofferdam will help divert the water to keep flowing, while letting the area that needs work remain dry.
Bypass pumping is a critical element of many construction projects, as mentioned above. With more and more cities and counties working on updating their sewage systems and infrastructure, bypass pumps and cofferdams are the number one way to ensure that the community can still get the work completed without interrupting these vital services. Bypass pumping allows for temporary rerouting of water pipelines, creeks, sewer bypasses, and excavation.
Keep Water Flowing and Your Workspace Dry
If your next construction project requires you to have both a dry area and still maintain water flow, make sure to use the Aqua-Barrier® Cofferdam and a bypass pump together to achieve your project goals. There is no better or more efficient way to divert water and keep essential services operating.
