PREPARE STORM WATER DATA REPORT (SWDR) FOR THE STATE ROUTE 180 BRAIDED RAMPS IN THE CITY OF FRESNO, A DESIGN BUILD PROJECT

SKE was hired by the prime designer to prepare the Stormwater Data Report (SWDR) and the SWPPP for this Design-Build project. During the construction phase, the Contractor hired SKE as the Water Pollution Control Manager to monitor the implementation of the SWPPP in the field. This is a Risk Level 1 Design-Build project and was completed in the Spring of 2014.

SKE coordinated with the Contractor and the prime designer to complete the SWDR on an exceptionally aggressive schedule, because the project was Design-Build. This Long Form SWDR followed the guidelines of the Caltrans SWDR template and the Project Planning and Design Guide of the Storm Water Quality Handbook. This 77-acre project comprised multiple large storm drainage systems, including pump stations, detention basins, as well as flood control systems from Fresno Municipal Flood Control District. The storm water runoff eventually drains into the San Joaquin River. With the information from the SWDR, SKE also prepared the SWPPP for the project. The Water Pollution Control Drawings for the SWPPP reflected all the required temporary Best Management Practice (BMP) items in the SWDR.

GERALD DESMOND BRIDGE, PORT OF LONG BEACH, CA, A DESIGN BUILD PROJECT

A returning customer hired SKE to prepare the Stormwater Data Report for this Design-Build project. This is a bridge and interchange reconstruction project. The Port of Long Beach, in cooperation with the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), is constructing a new bridge to replace the existing Gerald Desmond Bridge, because the existing bridge is functionally and seismically deficient. The new bridge will be designed to current seismic standards and will meet the transportation needs of the surrounding areas. It will connect State Route 710 (Long Beach Freeway) to Terminal Island in the City of Long Beach. It will also extend the freeway to just east of State Route 47 (Terminal Island Freeway). The estimated cost for this project is approximately $1 billion.


The scope of work for this Long Form SWDR included the following tasks:

  • Gathered and reviewed all the related documents for the project including the drainage report, the Corridor Stormwater Management Study and all water quality issues in the Environmental Impact Report,

  • Coordinated with the prime designer for drainage, water quality treatment and temporary Best Management Practice items to be implemented in the project, as required by the regulations and Caltrans District 7,

  • Prepared the Long Form SWDR in Plan, Specification and Estimate (PS&E) format according to the Project Planning and Design Guide of the Storm Water Quality Handbook and Caltrans District 7 requirements,

  • Responded to the comments from the prime designer, Caltrans and the Port of Long Beach (owner).
