FEATURED PROJECT PROFILE
Bayou Place Erosion Control Project
It was the flood water forces resulting from Hurricane Harvey that damaged both the supporting hillside and Bayou Place to the extent that the building needed to be closed. Four days of unrelenting downpour created an overwhelming amount of stormwater runoff that brought the rushing Bayou above the building’s foundation line, allowing the turbulent water to chip away at the building’s concrete base, as well as wash away layers upon layers of the hillside. As Harvey pulled away and the water receded, several large holes in the building wall became visible, meaning the entire underbelly of Bayou Place had been flooded and was now open to the elements. In addition, the once vegetated hillside below the building was decimated, leaving it vulnerable to erosion and now an unsightly section of Buffalo Bayou Walk. Houston First, the building’s management company, would need to repair the damage to both the building’s wall and the hillside.

Stormwater: Why Care?
Stormwater management may seem like a relatively new industry, but it has actually been around since the Roman times. They knew, even back then, that managing stormwater runoff was a key issue to urban living. With poor stormwater management, both flooding and disease constantly wreaked havoc in ancient cities.
Not much has changed since then, except now, with more and more of the earth being covered over with cement and other impervious surfaces, the negative effects of poor stormwater management have increased exponentially. Our natural water supplies are at risk due to pollution and their lack of ability to recharge. The flowing of our waterways are at risk from erosion, sediment build up, and trash. And, our marine life is at risk, from all the chemicals finding their way into bodies of water.
Some may see stormwater management as just another unnecessary and unwanted cost to construction projects or property ownership and management. But, understanding the negative effects that poor or no stormwater management is causing should be a concern to us all. It affects where we live and play. It affects our marine-based food supply. It affects our dwindling water supply.
We care. It is why we do what we do.
While the rest of the country focused on treating one inch of rainfall, we were pushing the limits and learning how to manage the largest storms by using Low Impact Development (LID) / Green Stormwater Infrastructure (GSI) solutions. We believed that if we could develop LID / GSI solutions in a place like Houston Texas, we could make them work anywhere.
Not only have we succeeded, but we have the the data, the case studies, and the experiences to prove it.
Since 2005, the team at Construction EcoServices and it’s partners around the country have dedicated their work to both the big discoveries and the small, that have drastically improved the performance and reliability of Low Impact Development. Collectively, they have been compiled here on this site, so that you may take advantage of the knowledge that has come from our success and failures.
