An article by the Plastics Pipe Institute, the trade association representing all segments of the plastic pipe industry, says the Faulkner Automotive car dealership in Mechanicsburg increased its display area with stormwater detention systems constructed under the sales display areas using large diameter, corrugated high-density polyethylene (HDPE) pipe.
“Instead of proposing a traditional open-pond detention/retention system, two large underground detention systems were installed to maximize the usable area on the property for vehicle sales display,” said Todd Wilson, project manager for Alpha Consulting Engineers and designer of the systems.
In other stormwater management news, earlier in June 2015, American Airlines installed seven Safe Drain inserts in key storm drains at its largest hub, Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, to help it comply with federal Clean Water Act regulations regarding stormwater pollution prevention.
