ACO StormBrixx® is a unique and patented plastic geocellular stormwater management system. Designed for surface water infiltration and storage, its versatility allows it to be used in applications across all construction environments as a standalone solution or as part of an integrated sustainable urban drainage (SUDS) scheme.

    • Description

      When additional parking lots were being added to a large business location in Greenville, SC, the challenge was to incorporate enough stormwater storage underneath the parking lots and still be able to tie into the existing stormwater system. 
It was a challenge to stay shallow enough to tie into the existing system and also to provide the storage needed. The engineers were considering a chamber and stone detention, but with a void of only 40%, they would have to go much deeper and wider than the site would allow. Instead, the ACO StormBrixx® system has a 95% void and they were able to do a lot of single-layer work while still getting the storage they needed.

    • Description

      When particular residential streets in Modesto, California, were experiencing frequent heavy flooding, the City of Modesto Utilities Department had to look at solutions to control the flooding and keep the streets safe and in good shape.

ACO helped design a new drainage system with StormBrixx® that helped solve all the flooding issues in these areas. This particular project used a system that was 112' long X 4' wide X 8' deep. The modular StormBrixx® units make configuration easy to customize to suit the needs of any project.

    • Description

      At the Sunwing Corporation office building parking lot, a stormwater solution was needed for not only storing water, but for attenuation as well. This project was 166 cubic meters in size and the tank was designed in two depths. One layer on one side and two layers on the other side. The site also included a 600 mm diameter concrete pipe that connects to one side of the tank.

    • Description

      At Strathmore High School, part of the Porterville Union high school district in Porterville, Calif., ACO’s StormBrixx® geocellular storm water management system was used for infiltration purposes because the water treatment plant could not accept the chlorinated water from the pools. The system was installed underground in the outfield of the baseball field, just south of the pool area. Two separate StormBrixx® systems were used; one to dispose of the backwash from the pool and the other to dispose of any drainage from the pool pump room. The project was installed in May 2014, utilizing a double-stack system with one access chamber in each system. Because maintenance was a critical factor to clean the inside of the tanks, the school district decided the StormBrixx® easy-access design was perfectly suited for this application. As this system was used primarily for infiltration back into the soil, StormBrixx® provided 1,300 cu ft of storage before infiltration back into the subsoil. StormBrixx® can be used to replicate several phases of the hydrological cycle. Designed for surface water infiltration and storage, its versatility allows it to be used in applications across all construction environments as a standalone solution or as part of an integrated sustainable urban drainage scheme. Stormbrixx® consists of a single recycled polypropylene body that can be assembled in a variety of ways to form an open bonded structure. Its pillar configuration gives a high void ratio of 95%. This minimizes the excavation required to achieve a specified water storage capacity, reduces aggregate needed for backfilling, and improves flow characteristics of runoff through the tank. The system features a cell brick and cross bonding feature, which provides stability in the construction of the tank.
