Steel Posts and Concrete Flood Channels with Natina Reactive Color
With scenic backdrops, South Mountain Park/Preserve is important feature and selling point for the homeowners on Mandan Street. During Arizona monsoons—which can include heavy thunderstorms, lightning, hail, high winds, flash flooding and dust storms—these homeowners would experience repeated flooding during these storms.
The Mandan Street Drainage Improvement Project was a joint effort between the Flood Control District of Maricopa County (FCDMC), the City of Phoenix and Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to help these residents. The project goals were: to reduce storm water runoff to the homes off Mandan Street; move the water to a draining system; minimize disturbance around the construction area; restore the plant life in the area.
Natina Steel Solution and Natina Concrete Solution were added to part of this important work. With many projects with FCDMC, Natina was a natural choice to ensure lasting color with minimal maintenance and apply environmentally-safe ingredients around the preserve. A ¼ mile long, 65 feed wide and 3 ½ feet deep concrete and earthen-lined flood channel was built. With Natina covering over 27,000 square feet of concrete with almost 200 steel posts and hardware lining the channel, the channel was more natural looking and complemented South Mountain’s desert landscaping. Unlike weathered steel, Natina did not run onto the concrete and created an aesthetic design for the residents.
