Drainage Repair


WHAT'S WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE?


Yep, that there is a low drainage catch basin, the result of a very successful fairway topdressing program. Over the years, so much sand has been applied to the fairways that now we are going through and raising things like sprinklers, valve boxes and now catch basins. On Monday the staff dug up and repaired all three of the low catch basins on the 4th fairway.


















Note the tree roots in the picture above and keep in mind that this drain is 30 yards from the nearest tree!



Once the drain is exposed, the old box is removed. A new connection is made at the 6" drain pipe and the hole is filled with a sand/soil mixture that will allow for the immediate area to drain better.


The area is then compacted and prepared for sod.


The finished result is a level area surrounding the catch basin. Not only do the catch basins look better but they will no longer be hard on our equipment each time we mow. Look for a more expansive drainage project this fall on the 4th fairway. Thanks and we'll see you on the course!

  4. Thanks for the post, and I just a bit of advice, that if you can get your drains maintained and regularly clean them. Then you won't have to worry about them being damaged and having to worry about getting all of this drain repairs done.

  6. I would honestly hate having to do something like this. I've done a fare share of my own digging and replacing in my day. My brother in law has some drain repair in Toronto, going on at his place next week. I hope he doesn't ask me for help.

  12. Very nice. Thanks for posting the pictures. We had something similar to this happen at our last home. My husband and brother had to spend the entire day in the rain digging out the right size hole, fixing the problem and then covering it all back up to where it was all the right size. Looks like your day was a little bit nicer to spend outside doing the repairs! Thanks again! http://www.dbrplumbing.com/Commercial.html
