This project posed several hurdles. The primary civil engineering issue was site drainage caused by several factors: several wetlands, poor drainage outlets, and obstructed outlets by a gas pipeline. We overcame the obstructed outlets by designing an “inverted siphon” to carry storm water under the pipeline. Other key engineering requirements that were overcome: overhead power transmission towers, the need to design a sanitary sewer lift station, the need to avoid a series of monitoring wells, and a large-diameter force main, that was installed by others, during the construction of the project that blocked another storm water outlet. With our knowledge, we were able to help D.R. Horton overcome these issues and bring this development to fruition.
