Dam & Detention Basin – Wright State University – Dayton, Ohio

STONE personnel were responsible for the implementation of the Master Plan for Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio. The project involved engineering design to improve parking, vehicular and pedestrian access circulation, and safety throughout the campus, as well as analysis of storm water management. Major portions of the project also included establishing architectural features and a common theme for the University to improve and update the overall aesthetics of the campus.

As part of Phase 2 of the campus Master Plan, STONE was involved with creating a new campus edge consisting of over 3,700 lineal feet of frontage, installation of over 2,100 feet of 10-foot wide bike paths, and over six acres of unprogrammed recreational space. STONE was also responsible for a hydrologic analysis and design for a new storm water detention facility. A 25-foot high, 300-foot long earthen embankment dam was designed to mitigate stream erosion of a bio-sensitive area on the property. A unique design of both the primary and emergency spillways was accomplished to minimize impacts to the bio-sensitive area. STONE also designed the storm sewer system including catch basins, manholes, and piping feeding into the detention basin, as well as performing construction administrative services.

“Having worked with STONE on a couple of projects I can say that Mary Sharrett and her staff work diligently to complete projects on time and in a highly professional manner.  They are trusted by state and federal agencies and their experience with permits saves the client time. They are among the best and I look forward to working with them again in the future.”
