Bean Blossom – Lot H
The Bean Blossom – Lot H project consisted the construction of a ~14,000 SF private residence at Tajiguas Ranch in Santa Barbara County. This project included a significant component of storm water control, collection, and conveyance, as well as on-site septic design. LaChaine provided the following services:
Hydrologic Study – LaChaine and Associates provided a drainage report with complete hydrologic study of the surrounding watershed.
Engineering Design – LaChaine and Associates provided the plan, profile, and structural design for the 1/2 mile long reinforced concrete driveway running up to the building pad including drain inlet and curb design. LAA also helped in obtaining the Caltrans Encroachment Permit for the lower portion of the driveway that was located within the Caltrans Right-of-Way. In addition to the driveway, LaChaine and Associates provided the grading and drainage design for the ~2 acre building pad including area storm drain design and septic system design.
Slope Stability Analysis – In addition to the civil design for the driveway, LaChaine and Associates provided geotechnical consultation for slope stability issues that arose during the construction of the driveway.
Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) – LaChaine and Associates served as the QSD/QSP for this project and assisted the owner from initial permit processing all the way through project completion and closeout of the storm water permit. LAA helped file initial permit registration documents (PRD’s), developed the SWPPP and erosion and sediment control plans, performed required BMP inspections and storm water discharge sampling and testing, completed Annual Reports submitted to the Regional Water Quality Control Board (RWQCB), and filed the Notice of Termination (NOT) to closeout permit coverage.
