Dewatering Plans & Permitting

The permitting of dewatering activities and drainage wells is a complicated process. CDPW Inc's team member will analyze your project and work with your team’s managers, superintendents, architects and engineers to develop a site specific dewatering plan.
The construction dewatering plan will be based on the contractor’s intended means and methods and will include all of the essential elements required to obtain agency approvals including an environmental review of County records to uncover any potential contamination issues which could delay and/or affect the approval process. Our plans incorporate several elements which are often overlooked:

  • Dewatering permit packages and submittals
  • Temporary drainage well plans and details
  • Evaluation of the offsite impacts to existing structures
  • Dewatering calculations and estimations
  • Groundwater elevation monitoring plans
  • Sedimentation calculations and evaluation
  • Dewatered section drawings and details
  • Current property, ownership and legal information
  • Constructibility review
