Jost Van Dyke, British Virgin Islands was devastated by Hurricanes Irma and Maria, 2 back-to-back Category 5 Hurricanes that passed directly over the Caribbean Islands chains.
The White Bay project was an effort to re-develop the site and integrate stormwater management to prevent the degradation of downstream aquatic resources.
This consisted of natural design techniques and improving the site via terracing, revegetation, stabilized swales, beach nourishment, dune construction, wet/salt pond construction and site grading to maintain safe overland flow conditions.
In coordination with the site restoration, entrance roads and parking areas were elevated along with nearby structures and utilities.
BCE provided site assessments, conceptual and design development plans. BCE was responsible for the evaluation of the watershed conditions in pre and post development conditions. BCE assessed and modeled the sub watersheds contributing to the site with TR-55 based hydrologic routings.
