Underground Detention

A stormwater detention vault is an underground structure designed to manage excess stormwater runoff on a developed site, often in an urban setting. This type of best management practice may be selected when there is insufficient space on the site to infiltrate the runoff or build a surface facility such as a detention basin or retention basin. 

Underground Fire Line

A fire main is a dedicated pipe linking the municipal water supply to your building with the sole purpose of putting out fires. This line feeds water to fire hydrants and sprinkler systems, both of which are critical for your building’s fire safety. If you’re in the process of planning a new facility, count on Cannon Construction. to install your underground fire line during the construction phase. We’ll take care of this critical fire safety component so you can focus on the other facets of planning your new building.

Lift Stations

Sewage / Wastewater lift stations, also called pump stations, are used for pumping wastewater or sewage from a lower to higher elevation, particularly where the elevation of the source is not sufficient for gravity flow and/or when the use of gravity conveyance will result in excessive excavation and higher construction costs.

Sanitary/Storm Sewers and Water Supply.

A sanitary sewer or foul sewer is an underground pipe or tunnel system for transporting sewage from houses and commercial buildings to treatment facilities or disposal. Sanitary sewers are part of an overall system called a sewage system or sewerage.

A Storm Sewer is infrastructure designed to drain excess rain and ground water from impervious surfaces such as paved streets, car parks, parking lots, footpaths, sidewalks, and roofs. Storm drains vary in design from small residential dry wells to large municipal systems.

A water supply system or water supply network is a system of engineered hydrologic and hydraulic components which provide water supply.
