17th and Livingston
The 17th Street and Livingston Avenue neighborhood was experiencing several drainage issues, including ponding along the roadway and lot frontages. These issues restricted access for the residents and caused substantial damage along the roadways. In addition, the City of Indianapolis DPW faced a unique challenge, which was the level of on-street parking utilized by residents. In order to maintain the current parking configuration while providing an adequate drainage solution, the City embarked on a plan to construct a sustainable drainage system throughout the neighborhood. This system was comprised of a series of infiltration trenches, utilizing a permeable parking surface treatment, and hybrid ditches to allow stormwater runoff to infiltrate into the soil and recharge the groundwater. In addition, utilizing a sustainable system allowed the City to reduce the runoff volume entering into the existing closed storm sewer system.
IEI was the Stormwater Engineer for the project team, responsible for the design and production of Storm Sewer Design and Erosion Control Plans. IEI conducted several field visits to determine the locations where the hybrid ditches and infiltration trenches would be the most effective and still meet the current needs of the residents. IEI also utilities to ensure minimal relocation was necessary.
