Foothill Engineering & Dewatering Inc.

Of major concern to our clients, and all excavating contractors are soils conditions and groundwater hydrostatic pressure. These two components can dictate the safety level of a project, and be the cause of extensive unplanned expense. Shoring, sloping and perimeter dewatering efforts all enhance the soil stability, reducing these hazards in a cost effective manner.
Dewatering is what we do well.

Interesting Things:


Did You Know....

Hydrostatic pressure of plain water at a depth, is about 1/2 psi per foot of water? Divers at 100' have about 50 psi on them.

How About....

One US gallon of clean water weighs about 8.35 lbs (8-1/2 is easier to remember)

Rule of Thumb:


At 480 volts, 3 phase; 1 hp uses about 1.5 amps, but it's more on Delta configuration.


For every inch of vacuum you can achieve about one foot of lift with clean water

Other Stuff....

A Little History....

The principle of buoyancy is attributed to Archimedes.
