University of South Carolina Rocky Branch Flood Study

Project involved the development of a Stormwater Management Plan in order to evaluate the impact of future campus improvements in relation to the storm water discharge into the branch. The Plan will be used to develop a flood mitigation plan, which will focus on those areas of the campus which historically experience frequent flooding from the Rocky Branch floodplain.

Irmo Chapin Seven Oaks Recreation Facility Improvements

AEC provided improvements to the recreational facility to include a grading and drainage plan, erosion and sediment control plan, and an updated Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWP3).

The Avenues Drainage Study

AEC conducted a storm drainage conveyance study including pipes and ditches due to persistent localized flooding in the Avenues portion of the City of Cayce. Data compiled was put into a hydraulic model in order to identify portions of the drainage system that were over capacity. The study evaluated a total area of 530 acres comprised of three separate drainage areas.

SC Metrology Lab

Topographic, as-built and existing conditions survey of 4 acre site of proposed metrology lab. Included grading and drainage plan, erosion and sediment control plan, storm drainage profiles, encroachment permit, zoning plan and water/wastewater plan. Preparation of landscaping and irrigation plan using the landscaping sub-consultants, Kenneth B. Simmons & Associates. Managed project bidding and award, construction administration and observation, and final certification and approval.

Wil Lou Gray Opportunity School Drainage Improvements

Design of the piping of a portion of an existing stormwater ditch, from Pine Knoll Street to Boston Avenue, to reduce the potential erosion and provide for better maintenance.
