A new 159,264 square-foot Meijer store features a 19,309 square-foot outdoor garden center area and a 3,376-square-foot convenience store and gas station. With so much impervious surface, engineers needed to design a robust stormwater management system.

The store is located in a suburban area, so the only place engineers could store stormwater runoff was underground. Engineers from Woolpert, Cincinnati, selected an underground detention system made from 6,029’ of 72” perforated aluminized corrugated metal pipe (CMP). The detention system provides 238,000 CF of storage within the pipe and surrounding stone.

Also installed were three Cascade Separator, Contech’s newest hydrodynamic separator. The Cascade Separator is a water quality treatment device that captures and retains sediment while also removing hydrocarbons, trash, and debris from stormwater runoff. Engineers placed the Cascade Separators upstream to capture pollutants from stormwater runoff before entering the detention system. Contech stormwater engineers provided storage and sizing calculations as well as detailed layout and dimensioned drawings.

A Contech Project Coordinator ensured timely delivery of all the materials and balanced the space available to take material on site. Also, a Contech representative was on-site to ensure a smooth installation and resolve any issues while putting in the system.
