Pacific Avenue Drainage Improvements

About The Project

In 2017, the City of Wildwood received $15 million in grant funding through the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) Flood Hazard Risk Reduction and Resiliency Grant Program (FHRRRGP) to eliminate several beach outfall pipes and install various storm drainage improvements on Pacific Avenue. RVE was retained by the City to provide design, engineering and construction management and inspection services for the elimination of the existing storm drain outfalls, installation of storm drainage pipes and the construction of a storm water pump station with force main. In general, the work on this project consisted of the construction of a new pile supported 60” Ductile Iron Stormwater Force Main Outfall and a Stormwater Management Pump Station with Pumps, Controls and Diesel Backup Power Generator.
