SOME EXAMPLES

DELRIDGE MULTIMODAL CORRIDOR IMPROVEMENTS

The Delridge Multimodal Improvements Project, a 4-mile corridor within Delridge Way SW from the West Seattle Bridge to Roxbury Street SW, will install 26 enhanced RapidRide Stations, improve bike and pedestrian connections to transit, and provide greenway connections.

2019 EAST BREMERTON & EAST PORT ORCHARD STORMWATER RETROFIT PLAN

Kitsap County Public Works (KCPW) developed a stormwater retrofit plan for East Bremerton and East Port Orchard to identify, prioritize and construct stormwater retrofit projects that address water quality and drainage problems. Both Green Stormwater Solutions and conventional stormwater techniques are used. The end result is a suite of management planning tools, including a prioritized list of projects and conceptual designs to support KCPW’s Capital Facility Plan and assist with obtaining grant funding for final design and construction of priority projects.

2019 LONG-TERM CONTROL PLAN UPDATE

King County Wastewater Treatment Division is updating their Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) Long-term Control Plan (LTCP). As GSI Lead, RKI was responsible for basin planning to integrate GSI techniques, such as roadway bioretention, permeable pavement, and green alleys, with conventional gray storage facilities to develop alternatives for reducing stormwater contributions to the combined system and reducing the required size of gray storage facilities to meet the regulatory control standard.

SPU BALLARD NATURAL DRAINAGE SYSTEMS

SPU estimates a Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) control volume of approximately 6 million gallons is needed to meet NDPES CSO control regulations for two uncontrolled basins in the Ballard neighborhood. While at a previous firm, Robin served as Project Manager and Lead Engineer through Options Analysis and final construction design of 17 blocks of residential roadway GSI for CSO control. Following construction in 2016, RKI was retained to develop the project-specific standard operating procedures and operation and maintenance manual. This project won the inaugural 2017 Pacific Northwest Clean Water Association Innovative Stormwater Project award.
