This home in Fair lawn, New Jersey added a large addition. As a result of the increased impervious area combined with nearby stormwater runoff, flooding became a major issue during rain events. Following a careful site evaluation of the soil type and runoff volumes, Bobcats for Hire recommended installing two concrete seepage tanks in a large detention field to adequately deliver the rainwater into the soil below. Our system incorporates soil type, impervious area, and expected rainfall amounts to size the detention field properly. On this particular site, the limited access (Below) was no problem for our dedicated rubber track equipment. Seepage tanks are good for the environment as they allow rain water to infiltrate directly into the ground and recharge the aquifer while preventing additional runoff from adversely affecting the ecosystem. Properly located seepage tanks will also prevent runoff from the property causing damage to neighboring properties.
