Landfill Turned into Solar-Powered Generation Facility, by Melissa Grace, A growing trend for renewable energy land use involves the installation of Photovoltaic (PV) solar arrays on closed landfills, undevelopable land, or potentially contaminated land. An engineered synthetic turf system was chosen to cap 35 acres at a Connecticut landfill; enabling the owner to turn their liability into an asset.
Damage Control from "FOD", by Lee E. Johnson, CPESC & L A Shafkind, ASLA, RLA, The width of the runway at Camp Guernsey Army Airfield was falling well short of the aircrafts' wingspan, leaving exposed earth on either side to become high velocity projectiles, or Foreign Object Debris. Choosing the right products to control erosion while quickly establishing shoulder vegetation was essential to meet the many challenges in this project.
Storms on the Promenade, by James W. Tiggelaar, PE, CCS, LEED AP, What was once a 14-acre wetland was filled to make way for a mall development, which included 12 acres of impervious roofs and parking lot. From the beginning, deep underlying wetland soils caused constant settlement under the parking lot and exterior utilities. Designers overcame a stormy sea of challenges to transform this declining mall into a dense mixed-use development mimicking native wetland conditions.
Riverbank Restoration Success - From Brown to Green, by Erik Bakkom, PE & Lia Ovelar, PE, Due to a contaminated bank and sediment, a complex stabilization strategy was designed and implemented to act as a significant remedial element on this urban waterfront brownfield in downtown Portland, Oregon.
Partnership Measures Behavior to Keep Watershed Clean, by Jesse Poore, AICP,CFM, The Keep It Clean Partnership has advanced watershed and stormwater education and outreach initiatives. Their experience and methods can provide some MS4s and watershed partnerships with a fresh perspective. Sustained synergy, pollution prevention, and clean water goals can be achieved by consistent and intentional implementation of Embraced Behavior evaluation strategies adopted by KICP.
Removing Dissolved Phosphorus from Runoff & Drainage Waters, by Chad J. Penn, The objective of this project was to design and construct a P removal structure to intercept dissolved P in runoff from a poultry farm in Eastern Oklahoma. This poultry farm was in close proximity to a stream and produced runoff with dissolved P concentrations that ranged from 1-2 ppm.
Environmentally Sensitive Streambank Stabilization Techniques (Geyersville Bridge and the Russian River - 5 Years Later), by John McCullah, CPESC, Redirective and bioengineering methods were critical on the Highway 128 Geyersville Bridge Project. The design concept was to redirect the stream thalweg with the best alignment possible, given the existing environmental constraints.
Ponds & Lakes
Renovativing a Tennessee Pond, by Bob Lusk with Michael Gray, When a local landowner envisions a beautiful fishing pond out of what was once an old farm pond, the pond builder must navigate rocky soils to complete the renovation.
