Number of pieces: 64
Number of systems: 2
Total water stored: 7,924 cf
Project Details: The project involves the construction of a stormwater detention system underneath a 214 unit multi-unit residential building.
Challenge: The site was tight with numerous limitations, such as: existing utilities, high groundwater, and poorly draining soil. In addition to this, a significant storage volume was required to meet state and local regulations. The peak runoff rate should be <2year pre-development peak runoff rate required by the City of Cambridge.
Solution: Stormtrap provided the volume and flexibility needed to meet project`s stormwater requirements. The stormwater system allowed large water storage volume fit in a small footprint between the building foundation colons, allowing pluming, mechanical, electrical utilities be rounded to that. Two pipes connect both units allowing continuous water flow between both units.
