Gerrard and Allison Storm Relief

Speedway, Indiana

This project included the design and construction inspection of storm sewer infrastructure in two large residential areas in the town that experienced flooding during significant rain events. In addition, this project eliminated the combined sewers in these neighborhoods and was considered an early-action project for the town in implementing their long-term control plan to eliminate combined sewer overflows at the town's wastewater treatment plant. Improved the storm drainage system to collect and convey a ten-year/one-hour design storm. Value engineering in the preliminary engineering phase yielded an estimated $1 million in cost savings through evaluation and revisions to the originally-proposed route. Parts of this project were funded by the federal American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).
