Low Impact Development and Stormwater Management

Additional Representative Low Impact Projects

Low Impact Development Retrofit Plan Design
School Lane Charter School, Bensalem, PA

F. X. Browne, Inc. designed an environmentally-friendly alternative to an existing school site.  After measuring soil infiltration rates with our infiltrometer, we designed a low impact retrofit which included grass swales, bioretention systems, native plantings, and reduction in impervious parking areas. The design reduced overall impervious cover, increased site aesthetics, provided perimeter vegetative filters for stormwater runoff management and infiltration, and provided natural areas for outdoor environmental learning. 

Whiting-Turner
Lehigh Valley Dairy
 

F. X. Browne, Inc. prepared the land development plan for the expansion of the Lehigh Valley Dairy, located in Upper Gwynedd Township, Montgomery County, PA.  We prepared detailed construction plans, the erosion and sediment control plan, and the stormwater management plan and calculations. We presented plans to the Township and received all approvals for the project. 

North Penn School District
High School Addition
 

F. X. Browne, Inc. worked with Breslin, Ridyard, Fadero Architects to prepare a LID stormwater plan, grading and drainage plan, and parking lot layout plan for the high school expansion for the North Penn School District. We prepared all land development plans and obtained all approvals. We saved the District $90,000 in sewer hookup fees by re-evaluating water and wastewater uses. F.X. Browne, Inc. also prepared construction plans and provided construction observation and management services. 

La Campagnola Restaurant
Parking Lot Addition

F. X. Browne, Inc. designed an underground stormwater management storage and infiltration system for a parking lot addition for the La Campagnola Restaurant, located in Upper Gwynedd Township, Montgomery County, PA. 

Caesars World Resorts, USA
Pocono Palace Site Development
 

F. X. Browne, Inc. prepared LID land development plans for new units within the Pocono Palace Resort including Roman Tower Units and Apple Units. We provided construction management services. We also evaluated water usage from the entire resort to obtain a lower sewer rate for the resort. 

Caesars World Resorts, USA
Brookdale-on-the-Lake Site Development and Wastewater Treatment Facility
 

F. X. Browne, Inc. prepared LID land development plans for new resort units at the Brookdale-on-the-Lake Resort. We also obtained all wastewater planning approvals and designed, permitted, and provided construction observation services for a 50,000 gpd tertiary wastewater treatment facility to serve the wastewater needs of the resort. 

Caesars World Resorts, USA
Paradise Stream Site Development and Wastewater Treatment Facility
 

F. X. Browne, Inc. prepared LID land development plans for Champagne Towers and other new units at the Paradise Stream Resort. We also designed a 40,000 gpd tertiary wastewater treatment plant to serve the wastewater needs of the resort. 

Caesars World Resorts, USA
Cove Haven Resort Expansion and Wastewater Treatment Facility

F. X. Browne, Inc. designed a tertiary wastewater treatment plant upgrade and expansion for the Cove Haven Resort, located on Lake Wallenpaupack. We also designed LID site plans for the expansion of the resort. 

East Stroudsburg Area School District
New Elementary School LID Site Design, Water Supply, and Wastewater Treatment
 

F. X. Browne, Inc. worked with The Architectural Studio to obtain land development approval for a new elementary school for the East Stroudsburg Area School District.  We negotiated with an adjacent land owner to connect to their existing private sewer system, and we obtained all approvals. We prepared the LID land development plan, the grading and drainage plan, and the erosion and sediment control plan.  We designed the wastewater facilities, the water supply system and the water storage system for the project. We coordinated the well driller and laboratories for the installation of a new well, and we designed an elevated storage tank on the site.  We designed a realignment of a Township road to provide better and safer access to the school, and we obtained all municipal and DOT approvals for the entrance drive. 

Delaware Valley School District
Shohola Township Elementary School Stormwater Management Design
 

F. X. Browne, Inc. designed and permitted a spray irrigation system for the Delaware Valley School District's Shohola Township Elementary School.  Since the school was located in an "Exceptional Value" watershed, allowing no increase in stormwater discharge, we designed an innovative stormwater management plan to meet these zero-discharge requirements.  We also located the water supply well and a highway occupancy permit for the school. 

East Stroudsburg Area School District
Elementary School Expansion, LID Design and Wastewater Management
 

F. X. Browne, Inc. prepared the LID land development plan for an expansion of an elementary school. We evaluated the existing wastewater generated at the school to determine that the wastewater generated from the proposed expansion would not require an expansion of the existing wastewater treatment system. 

LTS Enterprises, Inc.
LID Site Development, Wastewater Treatment, and Water Supply
 

F. X. Browne, Inc. designed a LID site development plan for Walnut Grove, a 45 unit townhouse development in Stroud Township, Monroe County. The site included wetlands and steep slope areas which had to be carefully considered in the design and layout of the structures, parking and utilities.  We designed an innovative on-site wastewater treatment plant with denitrification that discharges into an elevated sand mound.  We also designed the water supply system.
