ARRO executed a three-phase plan that started from the ground up and included stormwater and wastewater solutions, as well as environmental considerations in this floodplain.


Planning and design of a 24-acre municipal park

Doubs Meadow Park

The Town of Myersville anticipated a need to design a new park for the enjoyment of its citizens. The vision called for the design of a 24-acre municipal park located within the floodplain of Little Catoctin and Middle creeks.

To efficiently proceed and to meet stormwater regulations, ARRO developed hydrologic and hydraulic models of the 34-square mile watershed and utilized an HEC-1 computer program to calibrate peak flows for various storm events.
ARRO also utilized HEC-RAS to develop existing and proposed 100-year floodplains and a 100-year floodway for the proposed 24-acre park at the confluence of Little Catoctin and Middle creeks.

The improvements for Phase I consisted of:

  • A new entrance to the park
  • State Route 17 grading, storm drainage, paving and pavement markings for widening
  • Grading, storm drainage and gravel for 100 parking spaces
  • Mass grading of ball fields
  • Sediment and erosion control
  • Seeding and mulching disturbed areas

The improvements for Phase II consisted of:

  • Paving the basketball court, walk/bike path
  • Installing 40 linear feet of CMPA culvert
  • Installing four baseball field bleacher pads
  • Hot mix asphalt parking lot paving
  • Signage, markings and related work

The improvements for Phase III consisted of constructing a new pavilion, furnishing and installing site lighting, minor grading, seeding and mulching of disturbed areas, and related work.

The big winners were the kids who received a big boost from the Wolfsville-Myersville Athletic Association. They were involved from the beginning and, with the additional cooperation of the town and ARRO, the Doubs Meadow Park is now a treasured community jewel. In addition, the stormwater management solution resulted in a beautiful wetlands that complements the shared space of the park.
