FUSS & O'NEILL, INC.
This project includes the engineering, design, and permit documentation preparation for a floodplain restoration. NRCS is restoring an historic stream channel near Janet Drive in West Warwick, Rhode Island. The existing stream channel is currently routed through a poorly functioning culvert. The culvert outlet is often submerged, restricting the capacity of the culvert and causing repeated upstream flooding to local homeowners. After visiting the site with Town officials, NRCS determined that the preferred alternative is to remove the existing culvert and restore the stream channel and floodplains to their historic regime. Significant deliverables include hydrologic and hydraulic modeling results, geotechnical investigation findings, 30 percent designs, 60 percent designs, permitting documents, and bidding documents (i.e., 100 percent designs, specifications and project manual).
