Preserve at Riverchase
This project was designed and permitted in 2012 and 2013. The assemblage borders the Catawba River and provides river access to the residents. The property has very severe topography, which limited the number of lots that could be accommodated. Lot sizes very from 55 to 85 feet wide covering a range of product types. 94 acres of natural open space is provided with walking trails, as well as a pool and clubhouse amenity. McAdams designed and permitted a public pump station and 7,300 linear feet of six-inch DIP force main to serve this project since there was no existing gravity sewer available to the site. Because the force main is not the long term solution for sanitary sewer in this area, McAdams also designed a 24-inch gravity sanitary sewer main across the project’s frontage with the Catawba River that temporarily connects to the pump station. When a new treatment plant is constructed downstream of this project in the future, the pump station will be taken off-line. Additionally, due to the fact that there was no public water serving this assemblage, McAdams designed and permitted a 3,600-linear foot 12-inch water main extension to serve the property.
