Project Details: A detention system was installed under a new parking lot at University of Washington Bothell. The university is adding 103 parking spaces for staffs and students. Prior to the new construction, the land was a grassy swale.
Challenge: The University of Washington plans to build another campus building on site in the next 5-10 years. A system that can be easily disassembled and re-purposed was needed. It will be possible to cut StormTrap joints, take stormtrap vault apart, and reassemble as another stormwater facility on campus if the new site meets the same site design parameters.
Solution: The detention system was successfully installed under the new parking lot. The water is discharged into a storm filter and after a wetland. The General Contractor Victor Bohannon – 3 Kings Environmental mentioned that Stormtrap was chosen for the project because the product offers the benefit of being easy to assemble. “Stormtrap offered a great experience in relation to ordering and installing” stated Bohannon.
