Lenz, Moretrench American Corporation STATE OF THE ART Tunnel dewatering, as it is practiced in the United States to-day, is partly art and partly science. Although removal of free water from a heading or from unlined stretches of a tun-nel has always been a necessary chore in tunneling work, im- proved dewatering equipment and

  • Industry News Slurry Treatment Plant

    Tunneling construction often present special dewatering problems. Dewatering for tunnels and shafts can sometimes be achieved with vertical or inclined wells drilled from ground surface, provided that access is available above the tunnel, and that there are no intervening service pipes between ground level and the tunnel.
