Groundwater Conveyance / Ditching Systems


For both cleanwater and contaminated water diversion applications, groundwater conveyance/ditching systems collect water and convey it in a sealed ditch with the predictability of a constant friction coefficient to a given outfall, such as a pipe, spillway or waterway.


Clean Water Diversions

Clean water diversions are used to minimize water quality degradation by keeping clean water away from active sources of contamination, such as construction sites and blast rock in open pit mines. These diversions can be temporary or permanent solutions to divert surface waters...

Tailings Dam Drainage

Tailing dams are often built using the upstream method as they are more economical. The limitation of this method is the eventual rise in the water table within the structure, creating stability problems. Safety can be greatly increased through the utilization of proper drainage solutions...

Contaminated Water Diversions

On industrial sites where groundwater or rainwater is contaminated, the appropriate water diversion solutions can convey and contain water until it is either processed or cleaned...

Erie SmartDitch Irrigation Solution

I want to thank you for getting things organized as quickly as you did for us and for the follow up calls and site visits that allowed us to get this work done and meet our schedule dates for the road work. As well, your product knowledge and ability to provide the technical support when dealing with the consultants was a major help in getting the system approved and installed correctly.

Not only was there a substantial cost savings realized by the client, there was also a benefit to the road structure as well. The original design road structure number was 3.780 and a calculated traffic (ESALs) of 2,147,000. The revised road structure number using the TX5 is 4.260 and a calculated traffic (ESALs) of 4,593,000.
