I have an infrastructure question, if anyone is able to answer. Since LSE is completely new infrastructure for the city, when they are building all the new sewer systems, are the sewers in the area shared for rain runoff and general waste water from the buildings? Since this entire site is next to the river and the lake do they divert rain runoff into those bodies of water, or is it all mixed in with the sewage? This would seem like an ideal place to start separating these systems, whereas the rest of the city is mixed sewage. I don't think the boards here discuss this type of infrastructure enough, and it seem fairly important on all these LSE projects, or any of these recently proposed mega developments Chicago is seeing.

I doubt the runoff for the entire complex is handled together. The city makes each building separate the run off and retain it. So every time another one is added to LSE the civil engineer will design retention to meet code for that project as they would with any other project.

I could be remembering wrong but I though LSE had a separate storm system they hook new buildings into and an outfall into the river for the whole development.

I imagine the streets just dump into the river. Interesting. I would assume they still require some form of retention though, they probably don't want everything just dumping into the river during a storm event either.

I always lust after their sturdy tripods, until I see them hauling the things around.


Seems like a lot of space on the edges (same on the other side). Expecting only compression on the sides ?

Mudding in preparation for putting down the sleepers.


after the dance circle ?


Weaving the sleepers into the piles.


You can spot the boy scout - always has a roll of duct tape.
