When people look at federal appropriations for construction or maintenance projects they don’t understand, they begin to question the necessity of those projects. The case for this blog is one of converting open irrigation channels into piped irrigation lines. If you live in the eastern half of the country, where water is much more readily
I know you all have been waiting with baited breath to find out the in's and out's of the last two considerations when evaluating a large diameter flow thermoplastic sewer solution. To recap, typically, the larger diameters tend to have far less directional changes and lateral connections. Also, interceptors tend to have deeper heights-of-cover
Engineers widely use plastic chambers for retention and/or infiltration of stormwater. These systems are comprised of rows of open bottom arch-shaped chambers in a stone backfill. Stormwater is stored in the chamber volume as well as the void space in the surrounding stone. Manifolds for chamber systems typically consist of 12" to 24" HDPE
Bioretention has been the principal form of Low-Impact Development (LID) used to slow, treat, retain and infiltrate stormwater runoff, mimicking a site's natural, pre-development hydrology.
One aspect of bioretention that has some scientists and regulators concerned is the phenomenon known as nutrient leaching. Nutrient leaching occurs when the bioretention media, which often contains compost, breaks down and releases phosphorus to downstream receiving waters.
