The City of Roswell's commitment to raising water quality standards figured heavily in AEC's design. Setting an example for future projects, AEC took a stringent approach to erosion and sediment control. Multiple BMPs were implemented such as grass filter strips, grass channels, and bioretention swales in series.
The station's unique design also features total surface drainage to multiple bioretention areas, eliminating the need for an underground stormwater network.
AEC looks forward to participating in the next Roswell Fire Station upgrade (looking at you, #8!).
In an effort to balance the site without costly haul-off, earthen mounds flanking the station were incorporated into the detention design.
