Marathon Engineering & Environmental Services, Inc. (Marathon) is assisting Birch Creek Meadow Company with the design and construction of drainage improvements associated with failing tide gates in Logan Township, NJ. Tidal fluctuations from the Delaware River have deposited a sand bar in addition to timber and debris in front of a triple-barrel 48” culvert making the associated tide gates inoperable. This created in essence a dam, preventing the upstream fluvial runoff from draining to the Delaware River. Due to environmental sensitivity, the proposed solution involves a new stormwater pump station that will divert the runoff from the upstream side of the tide gates to the downstream side. The design includes a duplex pump system that will be utilized to accommodate approximately 1,300 acres of tributary area.
