Spring Valley Stream Restoration – Parks and Recreation Department – Westerville, Ohio

STONE prepared engineering plans for the removal of three deteriorated bridges, abutments, and weirs in this City-owned greenway. The bridges and weirs were constructed in the late 1970s but had received minimal maintenance from the homeowner’s association, who were the owners at the time. In addition to the removals, STONE designed a stop-log outlet structure and discharge line for a storm water retention basin and, in conjunction with an architect, prepared detailed plans for trail/path improvements, new bridge abutments and bridge foundation design, and stream-bank improvement measures. STONE also assisted with geotechnical review for the bridge and on-site construction observation.

I just wanted to reach out to both of you & all of Stone for your outstanding effort, due diligence & professionalism on this project.

I’m certainly no ESA expert, but I was blown away by the detail contained in your report, especially given the tight timeframe that was required for delivery.

Please know that your work at Walnut Grove is very much appreciated by everyone here at POAH.

For the record, I am now a huge fan of Stone Environmental, and I hope we will continue our working relationship well into the future.

Doug Dempsey, POAH
