Subsurface water holds a significantly higher risk and poses a greater potential cost, largely because subsurface water flows through subsurface conditions for which the different soil and rock gradients cannot be understood with total accuracy based upon the only tool available to aid in predicting subsurface water flow— the soil borings. A project will have only a few soil borings performed, primarily due to their high cost. 2) involves a considerable amount of intuition and guesswork. Determining the depth to drill the dewatering wells, based upon the determination of the depth of the water table relative to the depth of the excavation, is relatively easy and will likely take care of 98% of the water.

For this reason the upper portion of a shotcrete lagging system must be lagged with traditional wood timbers, but with this approach the face of the wood lagging will be several inches behind the face of shotcrete lagging. To provide a straight substrate for the waterproofing membrane and proper form for the concrete building wall, the woodlagging portion must be built out flush with the shotcrete. There are several ways to build up the wood-lagged portion to be flush with the shotcrete below: (i) Tack weld metal decking to the shoring piles to form-up the top of the excavation.

The dewatering work is commonly bid based upon conceptual drawings, and the pits are generally not identified on them. When the project is completed and the dewatering system is shut down, it will be most economical to leave some components in the ground. It should be clearly communicated to the dewatering subcontractor how this is to be done. First, confirm how deep the wells must be demolished below grade and properly address this in the bid instructions to prospective subcontractors. 4). 18.
