Case Study:  CULTEC System Infiltrates Nuisance Water for City of Rochester Roadway

Dear Stormwater Professional,

Nuisance groundwater was causing major headaches for one homeowner in the Crystal Spring neighborhood of Rochester. This rural subdivision was formerly farms and rural land. The drainage area leading to the ditch that held the nuisance water drained approximately 9 acres of woods and yards, and drained through a culvert at a rate of 3–5 gallons a minute. While the City of Rochester graded the ditch in 2015, that remedy only provided temporary relief.

In fall 2016, the City of Rochester looked for a creative solution instead of trying to re-grade hundreds, and potentially thousands, of feet of ditch bottom and trying to reset private driveway culverts.

Our friends at CULTEC provided this case study to show how the City of Rochester approached the problem of nuisance water in a cost-effective manner without the need to levy a special assessment on homeowners.
