Downtown Drainage Improvements – Kinney Street Stormwater Pump Station

Corpus Christi, Texas

A contractor in Corpus Christi, Texas hired Stiver Engineering to provide structural design by designing a caisson for the Kinney Street stormwater pump station project that would improve drainage systems in the downtown area. The pump station contained five vertical stormwater pumps, baffle walls, mechanical bar screens, generators, a discharge chamber, and a control building on the top slab of the caisson.  We designed the reinforced concrete structure to be poured in lifts and sunk into the earth until the cutting edge of the caisson reached the design elevation, and we designed the influent channel for the pump station.
