Structural Best Management Practices (BMP) have been a long standing practice used to mitigate the impacts of storm water management.  There are many structural BMPs that designers and engineer use to manage storm water, however, the most widely utilized are those that incorporate detention, retention, and infiltration practices to control rate and volume. As a manufacturer of the three leading materials used for underground storm water storage, Lane is uniquely suited to assist the civil site design team in the selection of the most appropriate system for the application—polypropylene chambers, HDPE pipe, and CMP systems. Each has a distinct value that may better lend itself to a particular application, cost savings, or both.


StormKeeper™ Stormwater Chambers

in Structural BMP's

The Application

StormKeeper™ Stormwater Chambers maximize the underground storage potential where available storage depth is limited, but still provide great flexibility with minimum and maximum cover heights of 2 and 8 feet, respectively. Used primarily beneath paved areas to preserve usable real estate, they also find application in green spaces for Low Impact Development (LID) practices.

Corrugated Metal Pipe

in Structural BMP's

Steel and aluminum pipe is available in a variety of corrugations and wall thicknesses in diameters up to 144”. Corrugated steel pipe (CSP) is available in several protective coatings to provide design service life, while aluminum pipe does not require protective coating. These choices allow designers to economically match the best material to the site conditions.

Corrugated metal pipe (CMP) and spiral rib pipe (SRP) are available in four different material types to economically meet the environmental and service life conditions defined for each installation.
