Drywell under a 10 story building

Drywell under a 10 story building

Drywell under a 10 story building

Do something seems incorrect with funneling 7,500cubic feet of water (major storm event) and all other site water into a drywell directly beneath a 7 to 8 story building at a depth of about 50 feet.

The site is underlain by an alluvial deposit with varying soil layers of silt, sand, cobbles and boulders. Possible collapsible soil, piping, 50 foot pressure head due to storage of water during infiltration.

RE: Drywell under a 10 story building

I fully agree with your concern ..Your post reminds to me , PIZZA TOWER.. The dry well SHALL NOT BE USED for gully.

RE: Drywell under a 10 story building

or the basement as a sump. lol

Rather than think climate change and the corona virus as science, think of it as the wrath of God. Feel any better?


RE: Drywell under a 10 story building

bad idea

RE: Drywell under a 10 story building

This thread makes me anxious lol

RE: Drywell under a 10 story building

Usually its a lot cheaper to build storm water retention structures underneath the parking lots rather than underneath the building.
