The planning and design process of implementing a stormwater management plan at the Loyola Medical Center in Maywood IL resulted in an interesting case study of flood mitigation, which is featured in the Informed Infrastructure Magazine – July/August 2018 issue.
StormTrap was chosen as the optimal solution to address flooding issues at Loyola. “Four vaults, comprised of modular precast concrete units manufactured by StormTrap, provide 8.9 acre-feet of stormwater detention storage. The vaults are strategically placed underneath the surface parking lots identified as the last remaining spaces not slated for future development. StormTrap’s highly efficient system was essential to maximize the vaults’ storage capacity within these constrained footprints. The units’ ability to support H-20 loads with minimal cover further increased storage, critical for overall performance.” Bill Wood, P. E. Associate, Civil Engineer at SmithGroup
