Site plan showing the Rainstore3 system in blue. Notice the slight “L” shape and the cutouts for landscaped islands for trees. The building is represented in gray and the triangular site in pink.
Workers place the cells as a forklift offloads pallets from the truck.
Close-up shot of part of the installation procedure: Geo-grid directly on top of the RS3 cells, and filter fabric above that. An additional layer of geo-grid (see photo 6) is placed over the entire chamber.
A break in the RS3 cells (foreground) show where the landscaped islands with trees will be after completion.
Asphalt for parking covers the entire Rainstore3 system.
This photo shows the unique “L” shape of the install. The back ground shows the RS3 cells with geo-grid and fabric. The center shows cover material. The foreground shows the “L” going off to the left of the building.

This site was considered unusable because the surrounding developments had storm water running through this site. With the tight constraints and the layout of the proposed building, Rainstore3 was the only solution. In fact, Rainstore3 made the development of this site possible – without RS3, the City of Broomfield would not have allowed construction.
