Project: Joplin High School
Location: Joplin, MO
Product: Hydraway 2000
Problem: The High School and neighboring athletic fields were destroyed in a devastating tornado in May 2011.
Solution: A total rebuild of the High School was required, in addition to 4 new synthetic athletic fields. It was decided that Hydraway 2000 be utilized to drain the fields.
Result: The entire project of the school and the fields will be completed in Fall of 2014.
Project: St. Louis Rams Practice Field
Location: Rams park in Maryland Heights, MO
Product: Hydraway 2000, 12”
Application: Synthetic Turf Football Field
Problem: New Head Coach – wanted a synthetic field installed outside to get the players used to playing synthetic in all kinds of conditions. The coach also wanted the base to of sand instead of rock incase the team wanted to go back to natural Bermuda grass in the future.
Solution: Hydraway was installed horizontally on the subgrade and sand was placed on the entire field. Then a product called “Fiber Soils” was integrated into the top four inches of sand to basically tighten up the sand so it won’t create impressions when walked or driven on. Then the turf was placed.
Result: The field drains well, and the Rams were pleased.
