A recurring customer of ours gave us the opportunity to complete a drain tile project pertaining to parking lot drainage problems in McCook, IL.
Maven Pavement Solutions has become a leading concrete and asphalt paving company in the Chicago, IL area. The client noticed that there were some issues with the pavement, including some unsightly stains that ran across the parking lot. They called us to ask if we could come out and take a look to determine what was going on and if we could help. We arrived the following day and found that islands in the parking lot were holding water, causing the water to infiltrate under the pavement. This compromised the pavement base, which is a big problem in climates that get colder during the winters due to the freeze-thaw cycle.
We quickly got to work on the drain tile replacement project later that week because we had a crew who was already working in the area. We excavated and installed HDPE perforated ADNS N-12 pipe in the islands and also ran trench pipes in the parking lot to the nearest storm sewer.
The client was thankful for an efficient job that made the parking lot look so much better!
