What Is Dewatering?
Have you ever wondered how underwater structures are built? Dewatering systems are used to create a space right within a body of water where the structure can be built. In this video, you will learn all about dewatering systems and how these structures are built. You will get an in-depth and inside look at the process so you can get an understanding of just what it takes.
You will also get to look at different types of structures and their unique building processes.
One of the dewatering systems involves building a dam of sorts out of dirt, surrounding the construction area, and then pumping the water out. There are some pros and cons with this method — it’s a simple procedure, but soil is not very strong as a dam. Other systems use metal or rubber sheets. The thing they all have in common is that they’re designed to be taken down after construction finishes to restore the water of the area.
