Speedway, Inc.


Project Specifications:

Location:  Hempsfield, PA

Application: Detention

Product used:  5’ – 0’’ SingleTrap

Number of pieces: 22

Number of systems: 1

Total water stored: 7,664.07 cf

Market: Commercial

Project Details:  A twenty two pieces SingleTrap detention system was installed underneath a Speedway Inc facility to manage and control the volume and discharge timing of stormwater runoff on site.

Challenge:  The main challenge of the project was to fit the system on the ground because there were many utilities on the site. A second challenge was to meet local stormwater regulations. According to the Civil Engineer Daniel B. Andres, Hempsfield township enforces a 50% peak rate water reduction, so a lot of storage was needed.

Solution:  Stormtrap provided 7,664 CF water storage in a small footprint. The water discharge system used an existing culvert which runs underneath state highway.
