The following are projects that Ms. Brown has completed in her career in the Las Vegas Valley:

SELECTED PROJECTS:  


2016 - Railroad Pass Travel Center - Henderson/Boulder City, Nevada,
Ms Brown prepared the technical drainage study for the 40-acre site, which included drainage and storm drain design for the proposed improvements of a fuel station and minimart. The site was located on a rocky slope with an existing large culvert located under the adjacent railroad berm, which discharged runoff flow directly onto the parking area of the site.  The drainage design included complex drainage collection and conveyance design, so as not to impact the downstream area, which, at the time of the project construction, is being improved with interchange/highway improvements by the state of Nevada. The drainage design also included BMP landscape swales as much as possible, to infiltrate and settle contaminants before release from the subject site.


2014 - Love's RV Storage Site - North Las Vegas, Nevada, Ms Brown prepared the technical drainage study for the 10-acre site, which was planned for development of paved/covered storage areas for RV vehicles. The site is located in an active alluvial floodplain, which required major flood control facilies to allow the civil design. The flood control facilities included onsite detention, and permeable landscape swales, to infiltrate and stop sediment from being discharged as much as possible from the site.


2014 - APEX Commercial Center North (ACCN)- North Las Vegas, Nevada,Ms Brown prepared the Master Drainage Study for the 132 acre site, which is planned for development of separate 6 acre commercial parcels. The site was impacted by large flows along the southern boundary, which is located across an active alluvial floodplain. The Master Drainage Study included drainage design for each lot, and for a proposed onsite roadway. The Study also included a flood control collection channel, with assoicated RCB crossings, etc. to convey a 100-year peak flow rate of over 850 cfs through the subject site.
