V3 was selected by the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago to perform drainage remediation alternatives analysis for an area highly impacted by urban flooding. The affected communities had received severe flooding for three consecutive years, causing structural damage of many residents and businesses. V3 provided creative engineering and technology solutions, which minimized the footprint of horizontal expansion and created cost-effective storage solutions in this urbanized community with limited open space. V3 also identified pump inefficiencies and designed modifications to the existing pump station to improve performance.
