Dry well DRAINAGE SOLUTION
Have pooling water in your yard? Greenway LS can provide you different solutions to address your unique problem!
What is a Dry well
A dry well is most often used in situations where a storm sewer connection is not available. Functioning the same as a French drain, dry wells provide large-capacity water collection and retention. They absorb
saturated water from a large surrounding area and can dissipate the water back into the soil as it dries out. Commonly for those without storm sewer access, the dry well can be designed and set up to accommodate a pump to remove the water. This allows an unlimited capacity to remove ground saturation. Even without a pump, dry wells are very effective in collecting and dissipating water into the surrounding soil.
Dry Well Frequently Asked Questions
I saw online that most other installation techniques don’t include above ground access to pump out water. Why do you include that?
A dry well on its own functions very well without intervention. In fact, most customers report that there is no need to pump out a dry well. However, including the ability to pump out the water is easy for us to do, and essentially gives the drainage system unlimited capacity no matter what the weather may bring.
Will I see the dry well once it’s installed?
The only thing seen from the surface will be a small access point to install a pump. Depending on the customers’ unique needs and desires, the cover can range from 6-12″ wide.
Can I drive my mower or other equipment over a dry well?
Yes. They are designed to handle the weight of common machinery. In the event uncommon equipment is needed in the yard, such as a skid steer, it is advisable to stay off the dry well location. Any riding mower or similar equipment can drive over it without concern.

We Love What We Do
There are multiple reasons why we love working with yard drainage. Customer satisfaction for one, especially when customers tell us how thrilled they are with the work we have done to correct their lawn drainage problems. We know we have help to resolve a concern.
Another one is figuring out realistic ways to solve a water problem without costing an arm and a leg. Some companies will come in and quote upwards to 50K for a project that involves massive house waterproofing. The problem is, once completed, there can still be flooding in a yard.
Our solution, for a fraction of the cost, is to divert the water from the property. This way the house stays dry and the water in the yard is gone.
In our line of work, we have seen massive over expenditures. Typically charged for correcting excessive water in and around the house. Our experience getting to the root of the problem the first time is best practice. Often there is a simple, and effective way to deal with the problem.
Licensed and Insured
Yes, Greenway LS is fully licensed and insured. In Wisconsin it is required to be licensed as a “utility contractor,” to do any outdoor plumbing or sewer hookups. There are also state codes about what pipes to use…required slope…calculating GPM (gallons per minute), etc.
Greenway LS believes in following the state regulations as another way to insure proper installation. We believe it gives the customer another layer of assurance the project will be completed according and up to code.
In addition, Greenway LS must submit to the county a plan for the work to be performed. Once they sign off, the permit (for the work) will be issued. All of this must be done before any work can begin.
