Comfort Stations

In 2002 and 2003, CDI was part of the team that designed new comfort stations at Buryanek, Snake Creek, West Bend, Chief White Crane, Lewis & Clark, North Point, Okobojo Point, Indian Creek, Walker’s Point, Lake Vermillion, Big Sioux, and Newton Hills State Parks and Recreation Areas. 


CDI was specifically responsible for the preliminary survey, site design, parking, potable water supply, and sanitary sewer. Most locations included a lift station and septic tank with a drain field as part of the design.  Some sewer systems were gravity systems and an inverted siphon was designed and constructed at Snake Creek. Although each comfort station was architecturally the same, CDI made every effort to make each location unique and provide solutions that were best suited for each site. 


Construction administration for these projects was handled through the architect. However, CDI was involved in several site visits and the final inspection and startup.  CDI also provided construction staking services at several locations since landmarks for measurements were not always readily available.
