Plowed Drainage Line Cost
Construction ITEM DESCRIPTION
Construction unit cost for a 4" perforated drain line plowed into the ground for site drainage.
One lineal foot of drain.
Labor and Equipment Costs
We figure 33 lineal feet of drain installed per hour by a bulldozer with plowing apparatus. We also include one unskilled hour per 66 lineal feet of drain.

No suggested quantity. Enter the total length of drain that will be installed.
Source of Construction Pricing
Based on crew and equipment timing from one drainage project done by a subcontractor under supervision by Turtle Creek Construction.
For very large projects you can probably reduce the equipment cost per foot (this project included about 1000 feet of drain line, and covers equipment transport and setup time, as well as the actual drainage plowing).
