Paulus, Sokolowski & Sartor (PS&S) was contracted to provide civil engineering and site services for stormwater management system improvements at Monmouth Park in Oceanport, New Jersey. The USD 22 million project included bringing the racetrack into compliance with New Jersey Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NJDPES) permitting requirements while protecting the water quality of nearby Brachport Creek. The new system included the separation of clean rooftop runoff to minimize flow to the treatment plant. The plan coordinated new infrastructure, existing infrastructure that would remain, and infrastructure that would need to be replaced.
PS&S used Bentley’s stormwater solution, including StormCAD, CulvertMaster, and FlowMaster, to generate the new hydraulic and hydrology system analysis and design. The solution enabled PS&S to optimize designs and minimize the effect of changes throughout the design phase. Using these products, PS&S designed a retention basin for runoff from a 25-year event, new stormwater collection systems for surface and rooftop runoff, and a pumping station and force main to convey surface stormwater to a water reclamation manhole.
Using Bentley modeling products ensured time management and accuracy for the project’s design elements were significantly improved. The flexibility of the software made it possible to analyze multiple iterations of the models to determine the most efficient system design. Though new to the products at the time, PS&S found the software flexible and user friendly, which eliminated hours of training that had been encountered in the past with other products.
In addition to CulvertMaster and FlowMaster, PS&S used StormCAD to design the storm sewer systems. StormCAD provided the hydrologic analysis to size the piping most effectively while meeting New Jersey compliance requirements. The stormwater runoff was calculated in accordance with New Jersey standards and then the data was entered into StormCAD.
