The Many uses for SmartDitch®
The versatility of SmartDitch makes it the best solution for many applications. The multiple sizes and fittings make designing for even the most complex situation cost effective and easy. In addition to controlling stormwater run off, the SmartDitch system is often specified to form defined ditches to control erosion and catch loose sediment. SmartDitch is also used for both permanent and temporary applications, and in-ground, as well as above-ground, temporary flow diversions.
Consistent, High Level of Performance
Taking natural water flow and allowing it to drain into a place where it can safely disperse is the main function of drainage systems. Properly installed drainage will provide the following benefits:
- Reduces risk of flooding
- Save money on repairs from water damage
- Draining water to runoff channels
This can be on roadways, at construction sites, or in any other area where water buildup would cause a problem.
Your Best Choice to Handle High Flow Rates
Storm water runoff can cause a large amount of damage. Most of the time this is caused from deficient ditches that can require continuous repairs.
Utilizing the StormDitch system, you will be able to control the flow of water runoff and save yourself repair costs.
Minimize Your Maintenance Costs
The SmartDitch System is often specified to form defined ditches designed to control erosion and catch loose sediment while improving landfill drainage. SmartDitch’s rugged construction and anchoring system resists the hydraulic forces of flow and provides a stable channel engineered for years of maintenance-free service.
It’s About Putting Water Where It Is Needed Most
Normal arid and dry climates, unpredictable droughts, declining ground and surface water
supplies combined with growing populations and increasing water demands makes the job
of ‘managing water’ in many U.S. regions extremely challenging. Water resource management
- Containing every drop of water that is received
- Channeling water with minimal evaporation and leakage
- Capturing and redirecting water from drains and wasteways
In other words, it is about putting the water where it is needed most so our farmlands,
municipalities, and communities — dependent on irrigation — can flourish.
Minimize Your Use SmartDitch to Dewater Sites Before Discharging Back into the Environment Costs
Construction activities like clearing, excavating, and grading significantly disturb the land. The disturbed soil, if not managed properly, can easily be washed off of the construction site during storms and enter water bodies. Stormwater discharges from construction activities can cause an array of physical, chemical and biological
