Location: Hempsfield, PA
Product used: 5’ – 0’’ SingleTrap
Number of pieces: 22
Number of systems: 1
Total water stored: 7,664.07 cf
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.
