1 Rapid Project Identification and Conceptual Design for Green Infrastructure Dan Cloak, P.E.April 8, 2015

2 Topics Using Google Maps to identify projects Desktop screening and conceptualization using Street View Project investigation –Utility information –Site reconnaissance and measurements Conceptual design process –Example and preliminary insights 8 Projects: Status and Next Steps

3 Watershed Scale (Map View) Old Urban –Street Grid Arterial Streets Old Industrial –Near water and rail –Large parcels

15 Alum Rock at Pleasant Ridge

16 Summary: Alum Rock About 50,000 SF (1.1 acres) arterial roadway Additional 72,000 SF (1.6 acres) residential streets Plus portion of residential lots draining to street 3 bioretention facilities totaling about 5230 SF Need for traffic calming and pedestrian access

17 Some preliminary insights This is a craft Potential sites are easy to find –But are not available in all areas Subtle differences in elevation determine feasibility and cost Creating changes to surface drainage will be a key part of many projects –Overlays –Removing catch basins –Using trench drains

18 Eight Projects LocationType 1Alum Rock Ave.Arterial Street/Residential Streets 2Commercial St.Old Industrial Street and Facility Entrance 3Hedding StreetArterial - Disperse runoff to airport approach area 4San Felipe RoadSuburban Arterial 5N. 5 th St.Bioretention facilities in residential parkway strips 6St. James AlleywaysPermeable Pavement and Infiltration Trenches 7South Grant St., San Mateo Curb extensions/bulb outs in mixed-use area 8River Oaks Pump Station Divert dry weather and low flows to bioretention

19 Format for Work Product Rapid Project Identification & Conceptual Design –Methods and Applicability Section for each of eight projects –Detailed narrative description of design Issues, opportunities, potential conflicts Design considerations. proposed solutions Issues to be resolved in next design stage –Marked-up satellite photos Tributary areas (with dimensions) Facility footprints (with dimensions) Direction of flow, storm drain connections –Calculations for treatment or dispersal area –Site photographs –Concept-level cost estimates
