Fabre Engineering & Surveying
Project Address: 5600 Industrial Boulevard
Fabre Engineering & Surveying conducted a topographic survey and designed a stormwater system for a 7.5 acre site with an existing 20,000 square foot building and an 80 percent impervious site.
The site was modeled using HydroCAD and the stormwater pond was designed to retain a 100 year storm. Due to the low permeability of the soil, a 30 foot by 73.5 foot sand chimney, 17 feet deep was necessary. Fabre Engineering & Surveying and the Owner coordinated with Santa Rosa County to maximize the stormwater pond capacity to mitigate periodic flooding of adjacent industrial sites and roadways. The Stormwater Management Plan was submitted to Santa Rosa County for approval and permitting through the Northwest Florida Water Management District.
