Dewatering is the removal of water from solid material or soil. Pumping water from a construction site. This is often done during the site development phase of a major construction project due to a high water table.

Under certain conditions, a WellPoint system often proves not only to be an effective means of dewatering, but also an economical one. WellPoint systems are particularly effective in stratified soils or where draw down must be achieved close to bedrock.

Features and advantages of WellPoint systems include:
    • Ground water control near ground surface to a depth of up to 20’.
    • The ability to dewater/stabilize fine to silt soil conditions.
    • More effective dewatering when clay conditions are present at or near invert.
• The ability to install dewatering systems where access with drillrigs is impossible.
HETCO is the largest dewatering company in Kuwait.
