Broward Health: Garage Drainage Improvements

The employee garage at the central campus of Broward Health is a two story garage that was constructed in the early 1970’s with the first floor about two feet below grade.  The drainage system for the garage used seepage trenches underneath the first floor of the garage.  With the recent flooding of the surrounding road system, stormwater from the roads would flow down the ramps into the first floor of the garage.  A two prong approach was developed to eliminate the flooding of the garage that resulted from the street flooding:  (1) provide a continuous berm around the garage and reconstruct the ramps to prevent floodwaters from flowing down the ramp and (2) install a new drainage well to supplement the existing drainage system in the garage.
