John Paul Jones Multipurpose Arena Charlottesville, VA
Nitsch Engineering provided stormwater management consulting for the creation of the new, 15,000-seat, John Paul Jones Arena. Because the Arena falls within the Meadow Creek watershed, the stormwater management system design needed to reflect the goals of the regional stormwater management study for Meadow Creek, which had been previously developed by Nitsch Engineering.
Nitsch Engineering performed detailed hydrologic and hydraulic analyses and prepared stormwater management designs for the new arena. These stormwater solutions include streambank/floodway restoration, created wetlands and ponds, biofiltration islands, vegetated filters, and other Best Management Practice solutions that will help restore a green environment to the stressed Meadow Creek stream system. These stormwater management measures fulfill U.Va.'s obligations under its regional stormwater management plan to mitigate for developments within the entire Meadow Creek watershed.
