Kansas School Installs Storage System to Meet Storm Water Requirements

By Steve Cooper


A total of 1,440 ln ft of HDPE pipe was used for the underground system.


To meet the storm water management requirements for a new addition to the Indian Woods Middle School in Overland Park, Kan., just one underground detention system was constructed.

The original design called for three storm water treatment units to meet the local ordinance. This was because the 16,000-sq-ft proposed building addition, along with sidewalks, exceeded the 5,000-sq-ft threshold outlined in the Overland Park Municipal Code. The system also had to meet regional environmental requirements.
