Underdrain Construction Inspection Mobile App
The Underdrain Construction Inspection app is a useful tool in the construction process for ensuring that an underdrain conforms to plans, standards, specifications, and contract requirements.
How does it work?
The app is designed to be used daily. An underdrain is a drainage system for removing standing water like stormwater runoff which can prevent soil from becoming submerged in water. This can be important for safety, preventing erosion and sinkholes, and it is also beneficial for maintaining healthy soil conditions. Additionally, it is an important environmental control that can reduce the breeding grounds for mosquitoes and other insects. Underdrain systems are often components of a more comprehensive runoff management system, or may connect to a treatment plant, or a waste pipe. Prior to any work beginning, the user should evaluate that the type and size of pipe being installed is correct and that the pipe has been properly inspected. During construction activity, the underdrain should be checked to ensure it is the proper type, and that installation and alignment are in line with plans and specifications.
