already spent $35,000 on a swales rehab project, the Jupiter Utilities
Department contacted their nearest Multi-Flow distributor to solve
the nuisance of ponding water and deteriorating sod.
to excessive rainfall and a high water table, the city of Jupiter,
Florida was experiencing difficulties with some swale areas in the
Sims Creek Development. The Jupiter Utilities Department used 150
feet of 18-inch Multi-Flow to stop the ponding of water at the swales.
To outlet the collected water, the Multi-Flow was connected to a
catch basin that flowed to a pond. After the Multi-Flow was installed,
the saturation level dropped by 6 inches and sufficiently stopped
the ponding of water. Not only did the Jupiter Utilities Department
feel that the test was successful, but they also plan to design
additional swale rehab projects including Multi-Flow.
