Project Profile:

Baylor University, McLane Center

Project Summary

Flush concrete curbing marks the perimeter of the fire lane. It is this curbing that may pose a barrier to good drainage. The subsoils must not be draining adequately since percolation is slow on the NW corner near the back bollards. An outlet drain directed toward the Waco River would be advantageous. The outside of the fire lane is adjacent to sports fields which require a great deal of irrigation.

A continuation of the fire lane shows its proximity to the sports fields which are greener and have healthier grass. Adding micronutrients and NPK fertilizer would invigorate the grass and improve the appearance.
