For the purpose of installing a stormwater demonstration project on campus property.
Stormwater demonstration project.
Four downspouts from the theatre will be disconnected and capped from their direct link to the combined sewer system. Swales will be dug to channel runoff from the disconnected downspouts to the rain garden. Excavation and replacement of 2 ft. of soil will take place at the site because of poor drainage. A clay berm with an overflow weir will be constructed on the south end of the garden to allow overflows during a large storm.
