STORMWATER MANAGEMENT CASE STUDIES AND WHITE PAPERS
The City of Rushville, Indiana had to remedy a consent order filed in 2007 for its untreated combined sewer overflow (CSO) discharges that were polluting the Flatrock River, a violation of the Clean Water Act. The city originally planned to install a 1 MGD stormwater storage tank, but was approached by Aqua-Aerobic representatives with a pilot test proposal utilizing a new technology.
Last-Minute Design Change Benefits Akron Project
The Great Lakes region was blessed with abundant freshwater for its rivers and lakes. Water as a resource and method of transportation were an important factor in Akron, OH, blossoming as one of America’s early manufacturing hubs during the late 1800s and early 1900s.
Elaborate Stormwater System Saves Time And Money In Florida Project
A stormwater management system designed for a new convenience store in Sarasota, FL, required a sophisticated and elaborate approach. When it was completed earlier this year, the complex system resulted in huge money and time savings for the property owner, which will enable the store to open this fall.

Superstorm Sandy Spurs NJDOT To Construct Stormwater Pump Stations
In 2012 when Superstorm Sandy hit the New Jersey coastline, it devastated Route 35, a critical flood evacuation route, just north of Island Beach State Park. With this critical coastal evacuation route severely compromised, the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) took immediate steps to restore safe travel.
Horse Racetrack Bets On Flygt For Pump Station Design
200-acre Monmouth Park Racetrack in Oceanport, NJ, is supported by a series of barns and other support facilities that house in excess of 500 horses during track operations. In the mid-1990s the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority (NJSEA) constructed facilities to collect horse wash water and first flush stormwater runoff for conveyance to the Two Rivers Water Reclamation Authority (TRWRA), a wastewater treatment facility located in Monmouth Beach.
Pump Station Retrofit Ends Stormwater Woes
A Bergen County, NJ, riverside town receives relief from torturous flooding after its stormwater pumping station is dramatically improved by the installation of new Flygt pumps.
Stormwater Wetland Reduces Sewer Overflow By 84 Percent
Through hydraulic computer modeling, MWH Global helped alleviate stormwater flooding in Cambridge, M.A., by creating the Alewife Reservation Stormwater Wetland to enhance water quality and provide recreational benefits to the community.
Installing Hydro-Guard® Automatic Flushing Saves Rural Texas Town $8,000 A Year
Managed by the private, non-profit South Jasper Water Supply, Buna, Texas’ water system contains 91 miles of un-looped distribution pipe with historical water losses of up to 30%. A small operations team is responsible for monitoring two water plants, reading 700 meters, repairing leaks, and flushing water to control the water quality. In an effort to spend less time manually flushing hydrants and focus more time on repairing leaks to reduce non-revenue water loss, South Jasper Water Supply purchased and installed two (2) Hydro-Guard® HG-1 Basic/S Flushing Systems.
Field And Office Technologies Improve Stormwater Systems
Although the city of Bozeman, Montana’s stormwater system has been silently producing front-page news for decades, it has typically only flowed into the spotlight because of an incident or an emergency.
Addressing Chronic Flooding In Texas
The city of El Paso, TX, lies on the tip of the Chihuahuan desert, and it is not uncommon for a year’s worth of rain to occur in a matter of days during the summer.
The user population of a Central Texas resort system does not reach its peak until summer and the resultant levels of peak and low usage vary widely. This fluctuation impacts levels of disinfectant residual and, consequently, water quality — especially at the end of the line. Manual flushing of the utility's hydrants to maintain water quality has resulted in excessive time and labor as workers must access the outlying areas.
