Project Profile:

Publix Supermarket

Project Summary

Publix Supermarket in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina. Rainstore3 made it possible for the grocer to use this limited site by installing three separate chambers. The designers utilized Rainstore3’s unique ability to be installed in a non-rectangular fashion to allow for tree cut-outs and to fit the footprint of their site. 23,184 pieces of Rainstore3 will be used to store over 75,000 cubic feet of water. Tree cut-outs and and other obstacles are no match for Rainstore3’flexibility. 3 Oaks, from Johns Island (in Charleston, SC - owner Steve Green) installed 575,000 gallons of storage in under 30 working days. That was all excavation, placing 6 inches of stone and sand to give them more "freeboard" because of the high water table, all the geogrid, geofabric and Rainstore3 installed and covered. The owner is delighted, because Rainstore3 was The only product available in North America capable of solving their water storage problems within the confines of their relatively tight parcel of land. It allowed this job to happen.

A Subsurface-Stormwater-Detention System was installed at Publix Supermarket, Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina, using Rainstore3.
Workers unroll the fabric just above the geogrid layer.
Stormwater Storage was achieved at Publix Supermarket in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina, using Rainstore3.
Stacks of Rainstore3 units are offloaded from the trucks and nearly ready to be placed into the detention system area.
An Underground-Stormwater Storage system was installed at Publix Supermarket in Mt. Pleasant, North Carolina, using Rainstore3.
A mechanical lift (in this case a fork lift) makes installation go swiftly in larger jobs. Rainstore3 units can be moved into the excavated area and workers can easily move them to the final position.
An Underground-Detention Pond was installed at Publix Supermarket, Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina, using Rainstore3.
Workers place the Rainstore3 cell stacks into the detention excavation.
