Contract Value:  $288,100

Project Description:  TMG Services, Inc. was contracted by the Department of the Army, Headquarters, U.S. Army Garrison for a design-build Low Impact Development (LID) Project at the Hopemont Family Housing Area.  The project consisted of replacement of existing storm water drainage ditches.  The LID design will replace these ditches so they will maximize the retention of the water from ponding and divert water away from the twenty-five (25) adjacent housing units.
