Drainage Correction Services in the Twin Cities Area
Water can be detrimental for asphalt roads, parking lots and athletic surfaces, especially in large amounts. If water has nowhere to go, it will collect in unwanted areas and become dangerous for the public and your asphalt. It is important to take the necessary steps when planning your stormwater management system to prevent this from happening. Bituminous Roadways, Inc. has assisted many customers by providing a variety of drainage correction services.
Drainage correction services:
- Catch basin
- Curb and gutter
- Slope corrections
- Permeable pavement
Catch Basin Repair
Catch basins are grated coverings near parking lots and roadways designed as a collection point for water runoff. They help to prevent water-caused damage around parking lots and roadways. Catch basins are important to keep water from collecting on your pavement, which can cause premature asphalt failure.
Curb and Gutter Repair
Before water can effectively drain into a catch basin, it is important to have a type of funneling system to guide the water. If your road or parking lot lacks proper curbs and gutters or they are in poor condition, water can collect in unwanted areas causing premature asphalt failure. It is critical to contact Bituminous Roadways so we can repair or replace your damaged curb and gutters to control water flow and ensure proper drainage in your parking lot or on your roadway.
The proper slope on a roadway allows for optimal stormwater drainage so water does not collect on the road. Time and heavy traffic can cause roads to settle, which can prevent water from easily running off the surface. Bituminous Roadways will survey the roadway or parking lot surface, and design the final elevations to achieve optimal cross slope while also providing optimal drainage.
Draintile Repair and Installation
Draintiling is a series of tubing that run along roadways, parking lots, tennis courts and other athletic surfaces to carry water runoff to a designated outlet. This could be a sewer system, nearby ditch or raingarden. If drain tiles are broken or nonexistent, water that is trapped in underlying soils can cause asphalt damage.
Permeable pavement is a specialty type of asphalt pavement designed to reduce the risk of stormwater runoff. Large voids in the structure of the permeable pavement allow water to filter through the pavement into an underlying reservoir for temporary storage. Permeable pavements are especially beneficial for areas that have tight restrictions on stormwater runoff and are well-suited for high-density urban areas.
If you’ve seen large areas of standing water in your parking lot, roadway or outdoor athletic
surface, this could indicate you have drainage problems. Bituminous Roadways has successfully designed, installed and corrected drainage systems for many customers.
