Weeping-tile is also know as foundation drain. Weeping-tile drains the water that runs along the foundation and basement walls of your home and is located adjacent or below the foundation. Weeping-tile is primarily found on homes constructed since 1946 and on some homes prior. Weeping-tile connection to the sanitary sewer was an accepted practice up until 1989.
THE GOAL OF THE WRAP PROGRAM IS TO:
- Reduce basement flooding
- Reduce sewage over-flows into the natural environment
- Reduce sewage treatment costs
