A Quality Drainage System Protects Your Property, The Environment
How Does Downspout + Drain Redirection Work?
Downspouts collect stormwater from the roof and gutters and transports it away from your home or building structure. Intercepting and redirecting runoff provides an opportunity to safely discharge the water to a place beyond the problem area. A well-planned underground drainage system diverts the water away from your property and away from the high traffic areas, keeping foundation safe and basement dry.
Downspouts should redirect stormwater away from the building a minimum of 10 feet for homes with basements and at least six feet from any impervious surface like walkways, driveways and patios.
Extending a downspout via underground drainage system, allows the flow of stormwater to be redirected away from hard surfaces, and toward to a pervious surface such as a yard, garden, or landscape.

Redirect Your Runoff, Help The Environment
Redirecting runoff water can make a substantial positive impact for stormwater management.
When stormwater runs over impervious surfaces it picks up and carries pollutants such as phosphorous, nitrogen, sediments, organic chemicals, heavy metals, and oil that are then washed directly into our stormwater systems. Redirecting runoff with an underground drainage system helps prevent these pollutants from being carried into our streams and rivers.
