“My husband and I are repeat customers of Holland Environmental. Mr. Wells Holland repaired our ~100 year old earthen dam in 2009 by putting a slip line inside the old partially corroded metal overflow pipe.
Earthen dams always seep water and ours was no different since it was sited in an area with many natural springs. Holland Environmental put in a French drain along the base of the dam (known as a toe drain) to conduit the seepage away from the base of the dam. This repair was done between March 30 to April 8, 2015.
We had lowered the lake by removing boards from the concrete riser during the repairs as a safety precaution. Then, Mr. Holland, who is a licensed diver, helped us get the wooden boards back into the overflow. He also helped us redesign and spread new white sand out into the lake at a small beach we had made on the shore of our lake. He used his heavy equipment to move some landscape rocks into place on our property.
We remain impressed with the prompt response from Holland environmental that we have had every time needed his services. Moreover, Mr. Holland is very knowledgeable about how to repair or create a pond or lake and we have also been impressed with his knowledge and abilities. Our working rapport with Mr. Holland has always been excellent.
Our next “project” will be to construct a goldfish pond on our property where there is a natural spring. And you know we will call Holland Environmental when the time comes to get the job done.
We were probably some of Mr. Holland’s most skeptical clients since we had two previous bad experiences with other dam repairs and since I am a retired SC state Registered Geologist (PG). “
