Client: City of Tamarac
Project Description: Municipal Utilities Project
HSQ Group designed and permitted five (5) separate drainage culvert locations throughout the City of Tamarac limits. These improvements were required in order to increase the stormwater flow volumes and rates between the existing canals and lakes within the Tamarac master drainage system. These locations had previously been experiencing drainage problems. The improvements included adding additional 48” to 60” culverts under existing roadways to reduce upstream flooding within the system. HSQ Group designed each culvert crossing and provided overall surface water management calculations using ICPR software. The project was designed and permitted through the City of Tamarac on a 30%, 60%, 90% and 100% phase review process. Both the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) and the Broward County Environmental Protection Division were also involved in the approval process.
