Storm water management team in a metropolitan area.
Illini Environmental, Inc. was asked to assit in a storm water drainage system clean up as a subcontractor for the above mentioned company. This particular drainage system was built underground beneth a parking lot and would process the run-off water to remove sediment and debris from the water before discharging into the local sewer system. The drainage system contained four 200-foot-long pipes with filters that connect to the sewer system at one end of the line. Illini Environmental, Inc. used a hydro vacto spray at all sides and angles in the pipes to break up the mud/sediment that had built up over four years. A vacuum was also used to suck up all the sediment and debris that was released by the hydro vac for disposal at an appropriate location.
In two days Illini Environmental, Inc. was able to break up four years of sediment and mud in all four 200-foot-long pipes and two drains that contained anywhere from 2-4 ft. of material. This small project increased the efficiency of the drainage system and decreased the frequency of overflow.
