This article presents the case history of the emergency repair of a storm drain discharging into the Flint River in Albany, Georgia. A summer flood destroyed the head wall of the 96-in. diameter storm drain. The stormwater rushed through the drain, progressively unseating 10-ton sections of concrete pipe at the line's outlet end. The escaping waters had eaten out a 20-ft-deep chasm that was steadily growing longer and beginning to undermine the riverfront drive into the city's civic center. Repairs had to be made promptly and while the stormwater continued to flow through the damaged drain.
