Neighborhood Drainage Improvements Using Green Initiatives
Phil Stuepfert & Thomas S. Creech, PE– HR Green, Inc.
The presentation will discuss the planning and design of the green initiative concepts throughout the Woodlands neighborhood to provide environmental benefits using rain gardens and protection from surface water runoff. Additionally, a goal was to achieve cost savings over conventional conveyance system design. The presentation will also discuss the decision making process, public outreach, do's and don'ts, and the best management practices used on the project which included rain gardens and underground storage with infiltration.
Recreating a Lost Urban Stream: St. Paul, MN
Dan Mielke, PE, CFM – HR Green, Inc.
The City of St. Paul has started construction on the Trout Brook Nature Sanctuary and Regional Trail, which is being developed in a 41-acre brownfield. A new 3,000 linear foot stream segment will approximate the location of the original Trout Brook which was placed in a storm sewer below grade in the late 1800s. The site will also include three enhanced pond treatment areas and three new wetlands to manage stormwater from adjacent urban areas to provide stormwater treatment and water credits to the City of Saint Paul Public Works Department. Upon completion, the Trout Brook Segment will represent the largest open channel stream segment in the City of St. Paul. The project will accomplish the goals of stormwater management, habitat creation, demonstration, and education to effectively “Bring Water Back to St. Paul”.
Woodbury’s Trifecta: Green Golf Courses, Clean Local Lakes and Funding for a Brook to Boot
Bridget Osborn, EIT – HR Green, Inc.
In the spring of 2011, Washington County (Minnesota) looked to HR Green to complete the final design on the reconstruction and expansion of a 1.73 mile long stretch of County State Aid Highway (CSAH) 19 (Woodbury Drive) in the City of Woodbury. In order to complete roadway construction, the County needed to obtain a stormwater permit from the governing watershed district, the South Washington Watershed District (SWWD). Through innovative engineering, HR Green was able to find a way to meet permitting requirements and also irrigate two local golf courses while reducing the impacts of stormwater and the use of the local aquifer.
