Jeffrey Field Stormsewer Replacement
The Pennsylvania State University, University Park, PA
The project involved the replacement of an existing 6" CMP storm sewer that served as the underdrain connection for the Jeffrey Field drainage system. The existing storm sewer had been disconnected due to damage caused by prior construction, and the existing 400 feet of stormsewer located downstream of the disconnected area was subsequently found to be crushed and silted closed in several locations during investigation by Penn State. The project replaced the inoperable sections of storm sewer, increased the drainage capacity, and also improved drainage of the adjacent practice field through the addition of several yard inlets.
