Byram Drive Channel Erosion Control Improvements

byram picInterflow prepared a Basis of Design Report and construction plans, permit applications, and construction documents for the Byram Drive Channel Erosion Control Improvement for the City of Clearwater. The study area is bordered by North Highland Avenue on the east where two 36” pipes drain Spring Branch into the study area. The Spring Branch Channel continues to the west into the Byram Pond before draining through two box culverts at Kings Highway.

The project provides erosion control to this section of channel within the City’s drainage easement. Three potential improvement alternatives were evaluated for providing erosion control measures. Interflow developed a Basis of Design Report and recommended one improvement alternative (a GeoWeb Retaining Wall) for design and construction.

Interflow successfully negotiated with permitting staff of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to develop a permittable solution that met the City’s maintainability requirements, all while conforming to the restraints of the easement. Interflow is currently assisting the City with the construction phase of this project.
