Ruekert & Mielke, Inc. (R/M) has worked with a local utility company to ensure their storm water infrastructure not only keeps their business running and their customers happy, but also meets the compliance needs across the areas of service. For the various locations in which their facilities are built, R/M collaborated with the client to ensure green infrastructure met their requirements.
Ruekert & Mielke, Inc. (R/M) designed site engineering plans for a major addition to this existing school facility. The project included the design of two large rain gardens adjacent to a new idea laboratory section of the building. The rain gardens were programmed to receive storm water from the majority of the expansive school roof and to infiltrate the water naturally into the ground instead of directing it to another area of the site.
This education sector project, that consisted of two phases, started with an existing elementary school, with a typical asphalt play area and parking lot that drained directly into the city’s storm sewer system and land improvements to a wooded lot adjacent to the school grounds.
The Village of Dousman recently constructed a storm water biofiltration device as part of the Main Street Reconstruction Project. Due to the elevation differences between the gravity storm sewer and the proposed biofiltration treatment area, Ruekert & Mielke, Inc. (R/M) and the Village developed a unique design to intercept and treat smaller storm events.
