Robinwood Neighborhood Storm Sewers and Water Quality Swale
Working in partnership with town officials, the Wessler team identified the Robinwood area of Brownsburg in a Stormwater Conceptual Capital Improvement Plan that ultimately led to a drainage correction in a neighborhood prone to flooding. Heavy silt accumulation and inadequate slopes resulted in poor hydraulic capacity, slow drainage and standing water in this area. Old clay pipes clogged, deteriorated and needed to be replaced. The Wessler team designed a new storm conveyance system to help alleviate drainage problems.
The project included the installation of approximately 6,500 linear feet of 12-inch to 42-inch storm sewer with new manholes, headwalls and catch basins. In addition, regrading of approximately 3,000 linear feet of open ditch improved the flow. Wessler staff were responsible for the study, survey, design, permitting, and construction administration.
