Edelton Ave consists of a group of vacant lots located in Severn, Maryland. The project is part of an old subdivision that did not have access to public water or sewer; these lots are situated on 0.33 acres of land. Without the extension of water and sewer the site would have needed to pass percolation testing for a private septic system and would have only yielded one new home. DFI prepared a residential site development plan, and public water and sewer plans for this development. This allowed the site to be developed into 3 new single family homes. Stormwater management for the site was designed utilizing the environmental site design criteria based upon the new state and county stormwater management criteria. Stormwater management was addressed by utilizing the nonstructural credits to the maximum extent and by a Landscape infiltration device. DFI prepared the initial preliminary plans, followed through with the site development plans and grading plans. The site is now under construction and has extended water and sewer and began construction.
Grading, Erosion & Sediment Control Plans
In conjunction with our development projects, DFI design engineers possess extensive experience with the preparation of Grading, Erosion and Sediment Control Plans. Plans are developed in accordance with County, State and Federal requirements to address the disturbance of earth associated with development activities. DFI design engineers routinely secure “Responsible Personnel Certifications” (formerly known as “Green Card”) through Erosion and Sediment Control training provided through the local Soil Conservation District offices. DFI manages all phases of the process including plan preparation, permit processing, survey stakeout, plan compliance certifications and completion of as-builts. DFI also prepares grading plans for mitigation of grading violations including meeting with the grading enforcement personnel as our clients representative.
