When Steve Briggs and Steve Weiss, principals with SAI Contractors in Cabin John, worked with homeowners in North Arlington to demolish their home and build a new one on their lot, they never expected to find three streams running underneath the site.
"We were building a Queen Anne-style home with a $750,000 professional sound studio and theater in the subbasement, but when we got about 30 feet below the original grade, we hit three different streams," Mr. Weiss said. "We had to figure out a way to handle what was essentially becoming a lake in their backyard."
"This type of water is called 'gray water' because it's ground- or storm water and not potable," Mr. Weiss said.
