Collier Construction teamed with A.D. Engineering to bring a unique stormwater infiltration process to the new Reside North community located in Chattanooga’s famed Hill City.

The project features 12 new environmentally responsible homes with the majority of stormwater falling on the site being captured and infiltrated back into the ground, bypassing the City of Chattanooga’s storm system, according to Mike Hodges, project engineer with A.D. Engineering.

“This stormwater system goes beyond the standard requirement of reducing stormwater runoff and actually rejuvenates the ground water table, which reduces the impact to the downstream neighbors during rain events,” he explained. “The stormwater runoff from the site is filtered as nature originally intended through the ground instead of through man-made devises.”

As a result, the project is the first to receive stormwater coupons for Stay-On-Volume (SOV) credits, a new component of the City of Chattanooga’s stormwater program.

Credit coupons are earned through the program in units of cubic feet of SOV and may be applied to other projects in the City of Chattanooga where infiltration may not be feasible or may be sold on the open market for other developments.

“A.D. Engineering is proud to be involved in this project and to work with Collier Construction to design above and beyond the minimum requirements of stormwater detention and provide an improved means of stormwater control,” said Adam Driver, president of A.D. Engineering. “We love to help our clients manage their stormwater with green infrastructure that also adds value.” 

Ethan Collier, president and CEO of Collier Construction, receives a grand total of 1,867 cubic feet in Stay-On-Volume (SOV) Stormwater credits on his Reside North community.
