Ground water, or subsurface water, flows through the soil and rock pore spaces below the earth’s surface. The term “water table” refers to the top level of the saturated soil, which constantly fluctuates depending upon the season and amount of precipitation. A high water table allows water to reach the surface, as do springs and artesian wells.
Rain and snow melt aren’t strangers to us here in Minnesota. Without proper drainage, you may experience surface/storm water problems such as standing/pooling water in your yard, a wet basement, or a downspout flooding your lawn. Diversified Drainage provides effective drainage systems, custom-designed to solve your specific water issue with minimal impact on your property, landscape, and wallet.
Ground water doesn't have to reach the surface to become a problem. When freezing temperatures penetrate the soil and convert the moisture to ice, they create masses known as "ice lenses." Additional subsurface water then travels toward the frozen area. The accumulating ice and growing lenses force the surrounding soil and rock upward, creating frost heaves.
