SITEDRAIN geocomposite drainage products provide solutions for a wide variety of subsurface drainage problems.  Multiple core and geotextile combinations are available to meet project specific conditions and requirements, including geotextiles meeting AASHTO M 288-06 specifications insuring high performance and high survivability for the most demanding civil and highway construction conditions. For product selection and design assistance please contact your AWD technical services professional.






The Problem

Subsurface water flowing from one area to another can create unstable or undesirable conditions in various civil and land development applications. Subsurface water flow in land development applications can saturate soils causing wet, unstable, and/or undesirable conditions.

The Solution

SITEDRAIN engineered geocomposite drainage products provide predictable high performance subsurface cut-off drain systems to intercept and redirect subsurface flow.  The formed, polymer core and bonded geotextile retain soil particles while allowing water to freely enter the drainage core and convey to designated outlets.

The Products

SITEDRAIN Sheet 90 Series is designed for cut-off drain applications where moderate compressive strength and flow capacity are desired. The geotextile side of the drain is oriented such that it intercepts the primary direction of water flow.


SITEDRAIN Sheet 180 Series is designed for cut-off drain applications requiring an increased compressive strength and increased flow capacity.  The geotextile side of the drain is oriented such that it intercepts the primary direction of water flow.

      SITEDRAIN HQ Series is an engineered collection and high flow conveyance system designed specifically for use with SITEDRAIN Sheet Series products.  The patented design combines a low and high profile core with a unique core flange that allows a direct connection to the sheet drain.

SITEDRAIN Strip Series is an engineered, value based alternative to traditional pipe and stone drainage systems for cut-off drain applications less than 3.5-ft in total depth. SITEDRAIN strip drain provides a significantly higher collection rate, comparable flow rate and increased ease of handling and installation without the cost and aggravation of stone.



AWD offers a complete line of fittings to connect your engineered geocomposite drainage system to traditional conveyance pipes.
