Abstract

The area of study is the Avery Drive drainage area. The objective of these projects is to alleviate frequent flooding at the Avery Drive neighborhoods. RC&A designed two options for improving the Avery Drive drainage area. Option one increases the capacity of the existing sewer system, and option two constructs a new storm drain system along Simon Street while keeping the existing system in place. Although both options offer preliminary solutions for alleviating flooding, the designs are unviable due to the lack of data that was available for the study. The following research will prove that RC&A fulfilled its contractual obligation of practicing due diligence by recommending further investigation to obtain valuable data for a complete and successful final design, rather than providing a solid recommendation based on existing data.
