Major pond repair was needed for Puller Place Apartments in Jacksonville, NC. After the last rain event, a sink hole washed out on the east bank. During inspection, engineers discovered that the pond didn’t have an emergency spillway. Emergency spillways are critical when rainwater comes down in amounts that the pond can’t handle. Large amounts of water will find a way to keep flowing, causing erosion issues in its pathway.
After taking elevation shots, Stormwater Solutions re-graded the area and constructed an emergency spillway. With the completion of the emergency spillway, the pond should function as intended and eliminate future washouts.
