GeoStorage Underground Storage
Corp. offers custom-engineered solutions for underground stormwater storage and
infiltration that provide high space efficiency and easy maintenance access.
GeoStorage Systems are comprised of a large open chamber formed by geogrid
reinforced stone walls within a lined excavation. The open chamber is spanned by
a concrete roof designed to support HS-20 loads. Interior reinforced stone piers
can be added within the chamber to expand the system. The stone backfill
eliminates hydrostatic forces within the walls and also allows for additional
storage capacity (40%). Geotextile liners can be utilized on recharge
applications and geomembranes on waterproof installations.
Since GeoStorage does not employ prefabricated storage units, it does not appear
in the HydroCAD's list of prefabricated chambers. However, a GeoStorage
installation can be readily modeled in HydroCAD with the custom storage option,
using the stage-storage data supplied by GeoStorage Corp.
Flexible storage options
Each pond may include an unlimited number of storage definitions as required
to describe its overall storage characteristics. This makes it
easy to model complex storage arrangements, such as a combination of multiple
chambers, pipe storage, catch basins, or other contributing volumes. You
can even include above-ground areas, such as a parking lot, that may provide
overflow storage for certain events.
HydroCAD can also
perform automatic embedding calculations to determine the combined storage of a
chamber buried in a
bed of crushed stone. This makes it easy to determine
the storage for virtually any configuration of storage chambers, without
resorting to manual calculations.
