Water Management

Water is one of the building blocks of life and yet for all its importance in keeping us alive it is also one of the most destructive forces in nature.

Standing water and water flooding basements are two of the most common drainage issues we see in the Cincinnati area. A combination of dense packed clay and heavy rainfalls coupled with a lack of foresight when a property is developed often leads to major problems. With proper planning and foresight almost any drainage problem can be mitigated.

As one of the only companies in Cincinnati that has drainage specialists on staff, we are uniquely positioned to help solve your drainage issues. We can design a custom solution, based on your property’s specific needs, that solves even your worst drainage nightmare.

Grading

One of the most commonly used tools in our anti-water arsenal is grading. By using gravity, one of the most powerful known forces in the universe, to move water from one area to another we can effectively redirect excessive water from one area to another. Grading can also be used as part of your existing landscaping to create beautiful spaces that also serve a purpose.

Drainage Systems

French drains, dry wells, channel drains. Depending on the exact needs of your property these are just a few of the solutions in our toolbox to help with controlling water on your property. Whether it’s a single solution or a multi-tiered approach to prevent an inundation of water on your property, having the right tool for the job is often the first step in creating a lasting drainage solution.

Downspouts

Many areas of Cincinnati still have original clay pipes from a bygone era. These clay pipes often collapse over time, causing water to backup into areas where it should not be. Often, replacing these outdated clay pipes with new PVC pipes that meet modern building codes is all it takes to begin shedding water efficiently from your property.

Culvert Installation

Older galvanized culverts rust over time and should be replaced with newer HDPE culverts that do not easily break down over time. HDPE culverts and piping are specifically designed to handle event the worst soil conditions and flooding. With recent studies placing the service life of quality HDPE pipes at well over 100 years we do not anticipate any problems with your new culvert.

Erosion Control

Erosion Control

The ability to slow the speed of fast-moving water is crucial to preventing erosion. Erosion blankets, ground grid, rip rap, and even turf grass are all effective solutions to control erosion when used correctly. Sometimes a combination of solutions is necessary to obtain the level of erosion control necessary to prevent washouts and landslides. Erosion control is often one of the first solutions we look to when evaluating issues with water run-off and flooding.
