Summary: The site was extremely tight on space so the only option for stormwater storage was either Rainstore3 or a concrete chamber. Corrugated pipe and arched chamber systems would not work in this situation. Rainstore3 was used based on its price and efficiency. Oloff Construction was also impressed with the ease of handling
Oloff Construction made good use of a ramp (far end) to load the Rainstore3 modular units into the excavated area.
