Excessive Silt and Drainage Block (Loop 12)


Road flooding and property damage was occurring due to blocked storm lines that ran under a major Dallas area highway. The problem was excessive silt, brush, and trash that had been backing up for some time and was being prevented from washing down the drainage system as originally designed.


KP would utilize two 100gpm Combination Trucks to work both ends of the pipe system to flush and vacuum the silt and debris. We also worked to clean out the drainage creek to ensure future flow away from the problem sections. There was continual flow so KP had to employ bypass pumps to reduce the water level in order to gain access to the collected silt.
