Village of Rye Brook Design & Construction Inspection Services for the Edgewood Detention Basin

Rye Brook, NY


AI, as Village Consulting Engineer completed a comprehensive two part drainage study for the East Branch Blind Brook Watershed encompassing 520+/- acres. Drainage analysis was performed using TR20 based computer modeling techniques.  Findings included recommendations for system maintenance and infrastructure improvements including channel upgrades and the addition of several detention basins and stormwater bypasses to improve system hydraulics and attenuate flooding problems including the 2.7 million gallon flood control detention basin at Edgewood Drive in Rye Brook. AI provided full design, bid preparation and construction administration and inspection services for this important project. The project was particularly challenging with regard to the close proximity to surrounding residents and intense community interest.
