Proven, Effective & Efficient Water Run-Off Drainage Solution
LTEC Surface Drains was founded in 2006 to control the unnatural and unmanaged flow of “Dirty Water” into Lake Tahoe caused by residential and commercial development of the surrounding shore lines.
LTEC engineers designed unique Surface Drain systems that are exceptionally effective at capturing, filtering and returning clean water to Lake Tahoe. With over 50,000 feet of LTEC Drains currently installed in the Lake Tahoe Basin, the water clarity has continued to increase every year and the waters are now the clearest they have been in ten years according to UC Davis Scientists who monitor the Lake Tahoe’s clarity levels.

LTEC’s proven success at Lake Tahoe have inspired contractors and home owners across the country to have LTEC Drains installed in virtually every application where runoff has to be captured, controlled and conveyed. With over 200,000 feet of drain installed throughout the U.S. (and counting) LTEC drains have proven to be a high quality, very effective product for virtually all runoff applications.
What Are Trench Drains?
Trench drains are usually designed as long, grated linear drains that are recessed into the ground or artificial surface. The surface is generally graded towards the drain opening, allowing water to be quickly evacuated from the area. The grates atop the trench drain play the double role of providing pedestrians and vehicles a safe and flush surface on which to walk and drive and ensuring that the drain does not become clogged with excess debris.
What are Trench Drains Used For?
In the modern world, trench drains are used in a variety of applications. They are used to reduce slip hazards on surfaces that are prone to build up water, protect property from flooding and damage, protect and extend the life of paved surfaces and foundations, and, in areas where there is a significant amount of rain and other precipitation, they are used to prevent cars from hydroplaning on roads.
Trench drains are better suited to a number of environs than a square catch basin drain. Catch basin drains require the surface that needs draining to be graded in awkward and complex ways, leaving an uneven appearance and creating a possible safety hazard. In addition, the piping of a catch basin drain of any shape is not easily accessible and is therefore prone to clogging and costly repair.
Trench drains are ideally suited for driveways, where square drains are nearly useless. Trench drains offer a neat, clean linear appearance that can border a driveway or house to protect the foundation.
What Kind Of Trench Drain Should I Install?
Like many products out there, not all trench drainage systems are created equal. When considering a type or brand of drain, it is important to understand the difference in materials used, labor required, and the estimated longevity of the drain. Also, it is really important to consider the type of traffic that the drain is going to be subjected to. If the drain is going to be driven over on a regular basis, you need to be sure that it can handle the forces.
