Jewish Primary Day School

The subject site is located at 6045 16th Street, NW in Washington, DC. The site consists of a two-story primary school bounded on the north and west sides by Fort Stevens Drive NW, on the east side by Rock Creek Ford Road NW and a commercial (retail) building, and Military Road NW to the south. It is currently occupied by a primary school campus with a parking lot, playground and athletic field. The topography consists of an overall mild slope to the north.

DMY conducted four (4) infiltration tests at representative bio-retention filter or permeable pavement locations. The locations selected were intended to provide adequate infiltration data for the design of all of the stormwater management facilities. In conformance with the published standard developed by the United States Bureau of Reclamation method outlined in USBR 7300-89, DMY used a recently developed automated permeameter device for performing the constant head method of infiltration. This system measured the hydraulic conductivity of the underlying soils. The infiltration test holes had been presoaked with approximately 6 inches of potable water before the actual tests were performed. Upon completion of the project, the client’s Project Manager commended DMY’s services stating that we were “Responsive and Innovative”.
