ForensisGroup Dewatering Expert Witnesses are experienced with the process of removing groundwater or surface water from a construction site. Typically, the dewatering process is conducted by pumping or evaporation… it is usually completed prior to excavation for footings or to lower a water table that might be an issue in excavation. Construction dewatering is used in many construction projects because of water that has accumulated water in trenches and excavations or in locations with inadequate slope or water table concerns.
Our dewatering expert witnesses have years of experience in the dewatering industry with expertise in pumps and wells. They have worked with wellpoint dewatering systems, horizontal well dewatering and pumping, and deep well systems. They also have substantial knowledge of environmental drilling, such as soil boring and sampling, monitoring wells, vapor extraction, air sparge, development and abandonment of wells, soil testing, and soil gas sampling, and are familiar with geotechnical drilling for piezometers and inclinometers.
These experts consult in litigation on construction delay, erosion, and water pump operation. They render expert opinions on best management practices and standards of care.
Their professional experience includes working as executives of dewatering companies, general managers of construction firms, surveyors, and geologists.
