Project: Civil & Storm Drainage Design

Newport Engineering contracted by the Property Manager/Home Owner’s Association evaluated, performed on-site survey, and civil/structural design for an innovative flood gate installation on the entrance ramp to the apartment complex.


The apartment complex which historically had been subject to severe flooding due to inadequacies with the municipal storm drainage system at time of heavy rainfall. At times of heavy rain fall, storm water from the street would crest on to the private property and enter the apartment complex lower garage area. Newport Engineering working collectively with the Homeowner’s Association and Flood Gate Manufacturer coordinated the design, construction plans and permitting process. Newport Engineering completed the design early 2008 with installation late Spring 2008. Shortly after the installation, the area experienced two (2) heavy rainfalls and the gate deployed twice in one week. Still and video coverage was taken at the time of the rainfall event and flood gate deployment.
