Water Seepage Control
Seepage is the downward and sideways movement of water from a source.
When the outer walls aren’t plastered correctly or when low-quality plastering materials are used, water seepage and water dampness can happen. Find and check any leaking drainage pipes or sanitary fittings in your home to figure out why your plumbing isn’t working right. Inspect the water supply pipes for any outflow as well.
When the performance of an irrigation system isn’t as good as it should be or when canals run through soils with a high permeability coefficient (more than 0.1 m/day), seepage-control measures are put in place to stop water from leaking out of irrigation canals.
When there is a lot of water in the ground next to a foundation wall or the basement floor, this is called “groundwater seepage.” The pressure of the groundwater can build to a point that it may begin to “seep” through small cracks in the foundation or floor.

Seepage does not necessitate any cracks or passages in the house’s walls or roof. It happens when the wall or slab is porous and water escapes through the wall or slab, causing water to appear on the surface. When there is a crack or hole in the wall or roof, leakage occurs.
Construction compaction is an important method for reducing seepage. The slope and bottom soils should be compacted when they have 95% of their ideal moisture content. Soil that is too wet should not be compacted, and soil that is too dry should be watered before compaction.
Most of the seepage can be stopped by lining the main and distribution channels with materials that don’t let water through, like concrete. Asphalt and plastic film are also used, though plastic degrades in the sun.
