Engineers Club & green|spaces present Chattanooga's Big Dig Project, Mon Sep 9 at 12:00p at green|spaces
Dennis Malone, Assistant City Engineer, will present the project. The City of Chattanooga identified that existing infrastructure was undersized for stormwater flows around the historic district of St. Elmo. Storm drainage for the St. Elmo area outfalls into Chattanooga Creek at the curl in the Tennessee River referred to as Moccasin Bend. The existing area storm infrastructure consisted of different pipe sizes and materials that had been added on to and extended over many years.
A plan was developed to re-route the existing storm infrastructure around the now-capped Wheland Foundry landfill and allows for new stormwater infrastructure to safely accommodate a 100-year storm event for an 1100-acre drainage area. The project coordinated with the St. Elmo Riverwalk project to include installation of sidewalks, bike lanes and streetscape features and was executed by the City of Chattanooga, S&ME, Civic Engineering & IT, Inc., and Wright Brothers Construction.
