Description

Transylvania University employed CDP to design and administer a LFUCG Stormwater Quality Project Incentive Grant between Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government and Transylvania University. CDP designed and created a variety of green infrastructure stormwater control devices to maintain and protect the water quality of the watershed.

The project allowed the University to renovate the existing parking lot while improving aesthetics of the site as well as improving the water quality of the stormwater released to the city's storm drainage system.  The oil and contaminates that were previously leeched into the waters of the Commonwealth are now reduced to just a fraction of the post construction amount.  Transylvania University is a leader in local community and CDP is pleased to help the University design and maintain additional green infrastructure. 

CDP also worked through out construction to help the project achieve a very tight construction schedule.
