The Problem

Usiminas, a Brazilian steel company located in Ipatinga, Minas Gerais, is increasing its production capacity from four million tons annually. The increase in capacity is necessary to keep up with the Brazilian automotive market, which is currently consuming 30% of Usiminas’ production. To increase Usiminas’ production capacity, construction of a new industrial infrastructures, material storage facilities, and increasing the capacity of the existing storm water retention and drainage system was necessary.

Increased hard surface area and increases in anticipated storm water runoff required the construction of a storm water retention basin to collect and control the release of accumulated runoff.
