Kern County Fire Station No. 58

The Y&H team has enjoyed working with the Kern County staff on the newest Station for the Kern County Fire Department.  The County held a Ribbon Cutting ceremony this month to celebrate.  More information on the station can be seen on the Tulare County News site.  Y&H provided general civil engineering, mountain hydrology calculations, storm runoff hydraulics, bridge culverts and ADA compliance services.  Due to potentially excessive storm runoff from the terrain south of the station, two major storm channels were designed on-site.  The western channel naturally separates the station, and fire trucks, from the main public road.  The design solution chosen to solve the issues were three individual CONTECH Arch culverts.  The culverts allowed for the designed storm capacity, while providing access for the large trucks and keeping a low profile over the channel.
