  • Meets minimum self-flushing velocity

Benefits of the Storm Drain Design:

  • Reduces future costs for downstream storm water improvements
  • Allows for future downstream pipe sizes to be reduced from the Master Drainage Study
  • Allows capture of large storm events without using valuable surface area for detention ponds
  • Provides additional protection against flooding in the historic downtown area
  • Helps preserve our river corridor by capturing the ‘first flush’ pollutant loads, remove sediment, and allows the water to safely infiltrate into the ground
  • Will help the City to meet the proposed MS4 rules
