Borough of Somerdale, Camden County, NJ
JEA has been retained by the Somerdale Board of Education to provide site/civil engineering services associated with Phase V of various site & drainage improvements at the Somerdale Park Elementary School. The Phase V improvements were focused on improving drainage conditions of an existing low area adjacent to the school that had been inappropriately filled and graded which resulted in the creation of low areas which accumulated and held runoff water. These improvements consisted of the installation of re-grading the area to provide positive surface drainage, construction of a stabilized swale, installation of an underdrain system, fencing and landscaping. For this project, JEA was responsible for preparation the site improvement design; stormwater management design; landscaping; and County Soil Conservation District approvals. This construction was completed by the Facility Management staff on a fast track schedule during the summer of 2006.
