Downtown Storage Basin



The Downtown Storage Basin will be the “capstone project” of the Toledo Waterways Initiative (TWI) Program and involve the construction of a new 16MG equalization basin with three (3) 50HP dewatering pumps, 740LF of 108” tunnel, roughly 1,500 LF of sanitary conveyance sewers ranging from 8” to 72” and the modification of four (4) existing drop shafts to the existing CSO Storage Tunnel under Superior Street. Adam was responsible as the Project Director to coordinate all in-house disciplines and sub-consultants required for the completion of the detailed design, including civil, process hydraulics, geotechnical, structural, architectural, mechanical and electrical design staff. The project design was completed on time and well under budget to the benefit of the City. Additionally, Adam assisted in the completion of pre-qualification of contractors for the construction of these improvements. The construction contract was awarded at a cost of $43.9MM and commenced in September 2017. Final completion of the improvements is anticipated in May 2020 to meet the USEPA Consent Decree issued to the City of Toledo.

Dearborn cso storage pipeline



Adam served as the project manager overseeing the detailed design of roughly 2,500 LF of 132” concrete pipe to be installed via open cut at depths exceeding 35’ and in close proximity to the Maumee River. The purpose of the new facility is to provide detention for about 1.4MG of storage for excess flows from the local combined sewer system, relocation of the existing CSO outfall to the main stem of the Maumee River and provide course screening and floatable reduction for discharges when they occur. These improvements were constructed on time and within budget at a total cost of $10.2MM, including a $95,000 net deduct. Construction was completed in June 2016 and the facility is operating as intended.

Ayers-monroe storage/conveyance pipeline



Led the detailed design and construction phase engineering efforts for over 3,000 LF of 108” pipeline, junction chambers, regulator modifications and site restoration on South Cove Boulevard from Monroe Street to Ayers Avenue. The new system will provide 1.1MG of in-line storage to aid in abating overflow events to the Ottawa River from Regulator No. 65 on Ayers. Additionally, Adam was responsible for the plan development for the roadway replacement along South Cove from Auburn to and including the intersection of Monroe. This project was completed in June 2013 with a construction value of $6.6MM.

WWTP 2.5 mg eq basin & associated facilities



Adam oversaw the preliminary and detailed design, as well as the construction phase services, of this project which consisted of a 2.5 MG Equalization Basin, raw influent pumping, ultraviolet disinfection, final effluent pumping and various other process and site improvements, including wetland & floodplain mitigation. The purpose of the EQ basin is to intercept wet-weather flows that exceed the hydraulic capacity of the WWTP from entering the scenic Maumee River. The $7.0MM construction project was placed in operation on schedule in accordance with the approved Long Term Control Plan and well within budget. The total contract change orders totaled less than 1% of the original bid. All agencies, including the Ohio EPA, Army Corp of Engineers and ODNR Division of Scenic Rivers were involved in the permitting and approval of the proposed facilities.
