BONNIEVILLE, KENTUCKY STORM WATER REMEDIATION

DDS ENGINEERING, PLLC, in conjunction with the Barren River Area Development District (BRADD), completed a city wide storm water remediation project in 2014 for the City of Bonnieville, located in beautiful Hart County Kentucky.

 

A total of six (6) locations throughout the city were identified by local officials as having inefficient drainage structures, which caused dangerous flooding issues during heavy rainfall events.  Bonnieville’s Mayor, Mr. Denis Edwards, was able to secure funding in the form of a Kentucky Community Development Block Grant, allowing him to seek consultation in remediating these problem areas.  DDS was chosen, via a competitive qualifications based selection, to be the consultant of choice during this remediation project.


DDS began the project by providing comprehensive topographic surveys of each of the six sites around the city.  This data was processed and turned over to DDS’ Civil Engineering Department, where design began.  Each site was reviewed independently to determine the exact cause of the drainage failure and a plan of remediation was designed.  Each site was carefully planned to ensure the entire watershed effected was accounted for.  In certain areas, this required extensive discussions with the U.S. Corps of Engineers to ensure Bacon Creek remained protected.  As the design was completed for each of the six sites, they were reviewed again as a whole to ensure that the benefits of the new structures would be felt city wide.  Following the completion of the entire design, DDS remained active throughout the construction process of the project.  


DDS managed the competitive bidding of the construction contract, which was awarded to McNutt Construction Company of Elizabethtown, Kentucky.  McNutt consulted with DDS throughout the entire construction process, which ensured an efficient and expedited completion to the project.  


Today, the City of Bonnieville is experiencing a sigh of relief as the residents no longer have to worry about the threat of constant flooding at any of these six locations!
