2008 Tropical Storm Fay produced 14 inches of rainfall in a 24-hour period causing substantial flooding. US Highway 1 was under water for more than 24-hours.

  • Conducted a drainage study of over 4,000 acres of developed land, analyzed canals, piping, two major storm water pump stations and calibrated computer models against high water elevations
  • Evaluated multiple combinations of alternate improvements, to determine the most cost-effective combination to provide the desired stormwater management level of service
  • Prepared engineering design and construction plans for 16 areas of proposed improvements and obtained permit approvals through SFWMD and ACOE
  • Obtained $1.5 million in construction grants to assist with the $14 million in construction costs
