  • flow control and WQ treatment performance of a residential LID pilot project in south Puget Sound
    Topics
    project background
    flow control performance
    modeling projections
    water quality at point of compliance

  • Meadow on the Hylebos: project background
    Project initiated in 2002.
    Partnership among local government, designer, owner and developer for planning and construction.
    WSU lead and developed funds for monitoring.
    Approximately 5 years to complete planning, construction and monitoring.
    Monitoring program was generously supported by:
    The Russell Family Foundation
    Washington State Department of Ecology
    Pierce County Advanced Planning
    Water Environment Research Foundation
  • Project Goals
    Design an integrated low impact development system that more closely mimics native hydrologic function to protect adjacent stream values, enhance groundwater recharge, as well as construct an affordable and livable neighborhood.
    Monitoring Objectives
    Determine if project meets flow control standards.
    Flow control standard: match peak flow and flow durations for pre-development pasture condition from 50% of the 2-year peak flow up to the full 50-year peak flow.
    Determine flow control performance for individual basins and water budgets for individual LID techniques.
    Assess general stormwater runoff quality for project as a whole at point-of-compliance.
    Develop highly accurate instrumentation and sound data.
  • Soil Types and Infiltration Rates
    Results from pit infiltration tests
    Pit 1: 0.76 cm/hr
    Soils: fine silt loams overlaying till, with occasional gravelly, sandy loam post glacial meltwater layers. Total relief ~30 m, slopes 5-20%.
    Pit 2: 0.0 cm/hr
    Pit 3: 6.35 cm/hr
  • LID features include
    Bioretention swales along road ROW.
    Permeable concrete road shoulders and parking.
    Compost amended soils and sloped biodetention.
    “LID light”.
  • Overall Precipitation and Flow Volumes
    Total on site precipitation
    (avg.): 651.25 mm
    Average annual (WRCC): 989.33 mm
  • Precipitation and Flow Response Volume Summary
    Total precipitation volume is the product of contributing area and total precipitation depth minus ET.
    POC contributing area = 2.1 ha, dispersion slope contributing area = 2.3 ha .
    Total precipitation on site (Avg.): 651.25 mm.
  • Bioretention Swales Precipitation and Flow Volumes
  • Precipitation and Flow Response Volume Summary
    Total precipitation volume is the product of contributing area and total precipitation depth minus ET.
    Bioretention swale contributing area = 0.31 ha.
    Total precipitation on site (Avg.): 651.25 mm.
    Ratio of bioretention area to contributing area: ~10%
  • Modeling
    Objectives
    Modeling of post-construction performance.
    Evaluate forested and pasture pre-developed conditions.
    Design feedback for facility and modeling.
    Methods
    WWHM3 Professional Version.
    Rainfall
    Onsite data.
    Local, long-term rainfall data.
  • Swales Station 6: Flow Duration Results
  • Dispersion Slope Station 7: Flow Duration Results
  • Water Quality Treatment
    Meadow on the Hylebos Sample Results for Metals with Comparative Studies.
    *National Urban Runoff Program (residential land use)
    **National Stormwater Quality Database (residential land use)
    Hardness: 110/74 (mg/L as calcium carbonate) for project samples
    Project sample: one number reported if both sampling events the same,12/02/07 sample and /2/6/08 sample reported if different.
  • Summary
    Project exceeded design objectives and met forested duration standard in 0.3 ha sub-basin (7 homes with 3 bioretention areas).
    Project exceeded design objectives and met forested duration standard where stormwater is dispersed to Hylebos Creek (bottom of dispersion slope).
    Project exceeded design objectives and met forested duration standard at POC with lined bioretention area included in modeling scenarios.
    Total and dissolved metals at POC at non-detect and significantly lower than typical concentrations.
    The LID applications appear to be robust.
