Description of Lane Engineers Role in Project:
Lane Engineers provided civil engineering design services which included grading and drainage plans, wet piping plans, pavement plans and off-site improvement plans. The grading and drainage design incorporated low impacted development techniques including bio-swales, french drains, and pervious concrete to infiltrate and convey storm water. In December of 2010, when the City of Visalia received heavy rainfall which left parts of SR 198 flooded and the City declaring a local emergency, it is noteworthy that this particular site performed exceptionally well under heavy rainfall and retained most of the storm water on site.
