Trench Dam


Trench Dam

Trench Dam: Per the Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety (LADBS) Methane Code, Ordinance Number 175790, a trench dam is part of a methane mitigation system. A trench dam is essentially a subsurface barrier that exists within a furrow or ditch, that is adjacent to the foundation of a building in a methane zone or methane buffer zone. And the purpose of a trench dam is to prevent the migration of methane soil gas through any permeations of a building foundation.
