What is dewatering?

Question

“Dewatering is the removal of water from solid material or soil by wet classification, centrifugation, filtration, or similar solid-liquid separation processes, such as removal of residual liquid from a filter cake by a filter press as part of various industrial processes.

Dewatering is also a term to describe the removal of groundwater or surface water from for example a construction site. In construction the water is pumped from wells or sumps to temporarily lower the groundwater levels, to allow excavation in dry and stable conditions below natural groundwater level. The process is usually carried out by pumping or through evaporation before excavating the ground for footing.

The purpose of dewatering is to keep the excavation dry so that concreting can be done. Dewatering is temporary if it is done at the time of construction.” Learn more @ tftpumps.com.
