This site consists of eight apartment buildings housing a total of 187 units, a 2,700-SF clubhouse, pool, tot-lot, numerous open space pockets, and extensive landscaping that satisfied Georgetown’s rigorous design standards. Working closely with local tax ditch managers (including State Judge/Court), Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control, Sussex Soil Conservation District, and City of Georgetown Engineers, the project team was able to deliver a holistic solution for floodplain, tax ditch and stormwater management (SWM) issues that minimized land disturbance and maximized buildable acreage.

In addition to the full spectrum of on-site civil engineering/ design services (including design of all roads, storm drains, sediment and erosion control), MRA also provided post construction as-built services for the utilities and SWM facilities.  Design for 1,500 LF+/- of widening and frontage improvements to Vaughn Road have been provided by MRA in conjunction with the development of this residential community.

MRA also provided planning, design and construction services for a 0.84-MGD regional sewage pumping station, 6,700 lf of 8-inch force main, and 400 lf of 16-inch force main, including 100 LF of 20” steel sleeve and 1,000 LF installed by direction drilling to serve the County Seat Apartment complex. The sewage pumping station discharged into a common force main which required the selected pumps to operate within a variable pressure range.
