A dry well is a man-made hole used to get water from the surface to below the ground. The way dry wells are designed allow it to receive stormwater runoff and let the water to percolate into the subsurface.
- Examples of dry well designs include French drains, infiltration trenches with perforated pipe, drain files, or holes deeper than wide at the land surfaces used to drain liquids from the ground surfaces. They are a common means of stormwater management in the Pacific Northwest. All dry well designs must be registered with the Oregon DEQ – with residential rooftops being the only exception.
