HAWTHORNE MEADOWS STORM DRAINAGE
Fort Worth, Texas
The Hawthorne Meadows residential development is a phased 92-acre project that will include 324 single-family homes and an amenity center. Peloton hydrologists prepared a major flood study to analyze approximately 3,700 linear feet of a stream which traverses the site from northeast to southwest (including its tributary on the west side of the site). The effects of increased runoff from the development were mitigated by on-site stream channel modifications, including cut and fill which removed two existing ponds that did not provide significant storage. These modifications were significant along the stream and resulted in a shifted stream centerline through the development. An existing undersized culvert crossing on the north end, under East Bonds Ranch Road, was replaced with larger reinforced concrete box culverts. Additionally, two internal residential street crossings required box culvert designs to adequately handle the 100-year storm event through the development. Peloton also designed roadway, grading, erosion control, storm drainage, water, and sewer for the project.
