Client: AMREP Southwest, Inc.
This project utilized hydrology developed in the Enchanted Hills Master Drainage Plan in the design of a 2-mile-long concrete drainage channel with several road crossings and one mile of storm drain. The design included an alignment study, hydraulic calculations (HEC-RAS), and four separate detention ponds varying from 20 ac-ft to 70 ac-ft. The concrete channel capacity is in excess of 1,300 CFS. The storm drain was and ranged in size from 36-inch to 90-inch.
