Sewer Bypass

Bypass, Pumping and Dewatering

From the most minor to the worst imaginable situation, Vortex Services can handle all of your sewer bypass, pumping and dewatering needs.

We understand every situation is unique. However, one call to Vortex Services is all you need to make. We will assess, design, build and operate the bypass system to address your every need. We specify the quietest pumps. We provide 24/7 pump watch to ensure maximum operating efficiency. We will also minimize surface disruption and traffic control throughout the operation. Finally, once the project is completed, we will restore the affected areas to their original condition.

We design, build and operate bypass pumping systems. Let the Vortex Services team assume the responsibility and liability by overseeing the entire operation, 24/7. From small, quick-response projects to long-term pumping needs, we are ready to mobilize.

No job too big or small.

With years of bypass design and operation experience, Vortex Services will handle all the details for you, no matter what size project. We were built to be nimble and have the ability to quickly mobilize crews, pumps, pipe and other equipment for all job sizes and demands.
