Storm Sewers are a material heavy type of project. Here are some frequently asked questions on Storm Sewers.

What does it cost to add a detention pond?
There are a lot of factors to consider on a detention pond. Some are pretty simple if your ground conditions are good. You need to keep water from running off to neighboring properties. An engineer will provide the necessary calculations based on the surrounding runoff properties, such as access to public drainage. Once you have plans and permits, we can look for ways to minimize your costs and deliver your project.

We are transparent on our labor pricing. All other costs are related to materials.
What kind of guarantee do I get with Pronto's Storm Sewer work.
We will build your project according to the plans provided. Storm Sewers are inspected frequently, daily in most cases. The system is underground and it cannot be covered up until an inspector has verified that the system is built to the provided plans and meets State, City and or County requirements.
What if we get a large rain during the construction of the Storm Sewer system?
It is a challenge installing Storm Sewers during the rainy season here in the Gulf States. We work to get the materials installed quickly when we open up the ground. We pre-plan inspections to ensure we can close it back up just as quickly. However, Mother Nature doesn't always consult our plans and we can get a lot of rain before the system is operational. In these cases, we will manage the work, through dewatering or other solutions, to ensure we can continue safely. This is not a change order or occasion to charge the customer more. It's just a risk of our line of business that we actively manage.
The permit office is requiring me to add detention for my project. Can I just put in a pond for my detention requirements?
Yes and No. A retention (water retaining pond) does not count as permeable detention. A detention system is designed to hold water temporarily until it can be drained to a public drainage system and/or absorbed back into the ground. You can add a pond, but only the area between the surface of the water and the lowest bank will be considered for retention. An expert, such as a civil engineer, would be your best bet for designing an attractive pond that can double as meeting your detention needs. Once you have the design from the engineer, Pronto can bring it to life for you.
