Your Quality Solutions installs a 750,000 Gallon Underground Detention Basin in Philadelphia, PA

Your Quality Solutions, Inc (YQS) successfully completed the installation of a 750,000 Gallon Underground Detention Basin located at 3820 North 2nd Street, Philadelphia, PA.  Dale Groff, part of the YQS team, started working on the design, layout and approvals of this structure two years ago.  Juan Carlos Salas, Project and Sales Manager for the company, led the team that turned the plan into reality.

This project is part of Philadelphia Water Department’s (PWD) effort to reduce the stormwater pollution in Philadelphia’s creeks and rivers, helping to clean up the Delaware River and Bay through Stormwater Management Incentives Program (“SMIP”) which provides financial assistance to qualified applicants who desire to install stormwater management practices (“SMP” or “SMPs”).

SMIP provides grants to qualified applicants for design and construction of SMPs where the City determines that such SMPs offer the maximum cost savings to the City, achieves the largest reduction of stormwater runoff, and provides the greatest environmental impact.

This Underground Basin was designed using (229) 8′ span x 10′ rise precast sections manufactured by Terre Hill Stormwater Systems incorporating the use of 7 strand post tensioning cables and the Terre Hill patented watertight grouted joint between each precast section.  The Terre Box design assures the system will be watertight.  Each section weighing 24,000 lbs was lifted into final position using a 330 ton crane supplied by Sautter Crane.


This is the 5th successful Underground Detention Basin the YQS crew installed consisting of 1,000 precast sections storing a total of 3.0 million gallons of stormwater.
