Here is one of many examples of a drainage construction project we completed on Thompson AvenueÂ in Alameda:
We will construct a drainage system along a 32 feet long portion of the left, and the entire right and rear sides. The depth of the system will be deeper than the adjacent sub-area grade. The system will discharge into a sump located at the rear of the residence. We will run the downspouts along the right side directly into the drainage swale that runs along the right side of your property. The water from the sump will be pumped into one of these pipes. We will remove and replace a strip of concrete along the right and rear sides as necessary to install the drain. We will remove the existing surface drain located near the left rear corner and replace it with a new one that ties into the system. The sump will be constructed to accept a future drain that will surround the furnace slab retaining walls at a depth lower than the slab if necessary.
