Water/Wastewater Projects
UrbanGreen, DuroMaxx, CMP Detention and CDS Effectively Manage Stormwater  Read More

Taylor Yard Transit Village

Taylor Yard Transit Village
Los Angeles, California - Situated along the Los Angeles River, a 24-acre site known as Parcel C at Taylor Yard is being transformed into a transit oriented mixed-use development with 30,000 SF of retail and 401 affordable housing units. In order to meet local stormwater retention sizing requirements while maximizing the available land space at the site, a combination of the following products were utilized: an UrbanGreen™ Rainwater Harvesting system made from 145 LF of 120” diameter DuroMaxx® Steel Reinforced Polyethylene, two corrugated metal pipe (CMP) detention systems, 120" and 114" in diameter, as well as a CDS® system for pretreatment of the water. Together, the UrbanGreen Rainwater Harvesting and stormwater management systems played an essential role in this initiative at the Taylor Yard site.

HEL-COR Relines Stream Enclosure at Military Base  Read More

Custer Road

Custer Road Reline
Fort Benning, Georgia - The military base at Fort Benning, Georgia, had an existing corrugated metal pipe stream enclosure that was still in good condition except for one segment which was failing due to a hole in the pipe. Contech suggested a reline solution that would not only save money but also keep the road from closing. As the solution, 450 LF of 60", 12 gage, 5 x 1 Aluminized Steel Type 2 (ALT2) HEL-COR® corrugated metal pipe was utilized because it would use little of the available area, while preserving the maximum amount of the original opening.

Oscoda Pier

Oscoda Beach Park Pier
Oscoda, Michigan - During an improvement project at Oscoda Beach Park, located on the shores of Lake Huron, it was decided that a fishing pier and observation deck should be added along the beach. To provide fishing opportunities, the pier was required to extend into deep, fishable water while the railing heights at the end needed to accommodate barrier free fishing. In addition, it was imperative that the design exceed Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements. Able to meet all of the conditions, a Connector®-style, Continental® truss bridge consisting of 3 - 100’ x 12’ prefabricated sections was selected as the best solution.

Keystone Compac II Realigns Future of Torrington WY  Read More

US 85

US 85 Realignment
Torrington, Wyoming - In order for motorists to travel south on US 85, they must first cross the BNSF railroad tracks (which are closed more than 3 hours a day), deal with the normal flow of traffic while also avoiding additional commuters from a major employer in the area. The result is the perfect recipe for congestion. Plans to separate the railroad crossing from US 85 are 30 years in the making and include a realignment where US 85 enters Torrington. A main component to the realignment was a 24,000 square foot Keystone Compac II retaining wall. Since every construction step necessary to completing the realignment relied upon, in some way, the construction of the wall, timing was critical.

Terre Arch Stores Required Stormwater in Limited Footprint  Read More

Bellewood Golf Club

Bellewood Golf Club
Pottstown, Pennsylvania - The Bellewood Golf Club provides a private, complete, and fulfilling recreational experience surrounding the simple pleasures of golf, swimming and fine dining. An addition to the popular swim club area required additional stormwater measures to meet regulatory requirements. The challenge was to provide the required volume within the limited footprint. Contech's Terre Arch™ system was selected as the solution for its ability to provide the required volume in the limited footprint while also reducing installation time and costs.

SUPER-SPAN Provides Signature Look at Subdivision Entrance  Read More

Hills at Round Lake

The Hills at Round Lake
Camas, Washington - With a stream/wetlands area situated at the entrance to the new Hills at Round Lake subdivision, a bridge was needed to provide access. It was imperative that the structure: provide a signature look, allow for utilities to be buried in the backfill and be cost effective. Since City officials preferred a buried structure, a 34’-7” x 11’-4” SUPER-SPAN™, 66’ in length, was chosen for its ability to meet all of the requirements. Buried structures reduce future maintenance costs and lower life cycle costs because there are no bridge deck or joints at the deck/roadway interface.

DuroMaxx Rehabilitates Existing Structure, Saves Money  Read More

Bradford County

Bradford County Reline
Lake Butler, Florida - Rather than go through a complete replacement of a deteriorating double-barreled structure, Bradford County, Florida instead began researching alternative rehabilitation methods. Located adjacent to a busy lumber company, the site experienced a significant amount of heavy trucking traffic so an effective solution needed to include minimal road closures. A 120" diameter DuroMaxx® reline solution was utilized for its ability to reline the existing structure thereby eliminating the time, cost and safety problems that would be experienced with a complete replacement. 

CDS Plays Major Role in "Green Road" Stormwater Project  Read More

Lake Street

Lake Street in Whitehall
Whitehall, Michigan - The City of Whitehall recently completed Michigan’s first “Green Road” by transforming 2,800 linear feet of Lake Street from a traditional paved roadway into a state-of-the-art stormwater collection system. The system uses pervious pavers, a Contech CDS® hydrodynamic separator, rain gardens and bio-swales to capture and repeatedly filter stormwater runoff from 60 acres of streets and industrial land near White Lake. The Contech CDS unit plays a critical role in this unique stormwater system.

Schuylkill River Parks

Schuylkill River Parks
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania - Located between the Schuylkill River and Fitler Square is a fashionable neighborhood in the Center City area of Philadelphia. At this spot, the CSX Railroad parallels the river and presents a physical barrier for residents wanting to enjoy the river and its recreational Schuylkill Banks trails. As the solution, a 12’-6” x 95’-8” modified Keystone®-style, Continental® truss bridge was installed creating a unique connection to Philadelphia’s “Hidden River” while also enhancing the existing transport network.
