Nampa Library Stormwater Management

Introduction Challenge Solution Installation Results Gallery The Nilex Advantage

Rainstore provides stormwater management while increasing land space.

The new Nampa Public Library is a 62,000 square foot facility with three floors. The building will provide visitors with ample space for reading, community events, and private study.

Location

Product

Project Partners

Contractor: Warner Construction
Completion Date: March 2015

Challenge

There was very limited space for the library’s parking structure in which stormwater could be stored and managed. The client required a stormwater management solution to be installed underground without affecting sewer pipes that would need to pass around the system.

Solution

Nilex recommended Rainstore3, a modular and stackable structure used to store stormwater underground. It is made from injection molded plastic with a single panel containing 36 vertical columns that are 94% open for water storage.

Installation

The installation was quickly completed by a crew of five over the course of five days. After excavating three different beds adjacent to the structure, a front-end loader was used to place the Rainstore3 cells into the holes. The units come pre-assmbled in depths from 4 inches to 7.5 feet. Built-in compression fittings allow the units to be easily stacked to a variety of depths. Once the system was placed, the sides were filled and compacted. The sewer pipes passed over top of the Rainstore3 system.

Results

The Rainstore3 system provided the client with the underground stormwater detention system they required which will increase land space for the parking lot. In addition, the ease of install and little excavation helped the client realize time and cost savings.
