Asphalt Plant Facility, LaPorte, IN

The Antero Group was contracted to develop a 28.5-acre site into a regional asphalt production facility in Northern Indiana. The facility is in an unincorporated area with no utilities on site, and no apparent stormwater discharge point. These challenges were met with the design of an on-site water well, septic tank, and stormwater management system. The stormwater management had to allow for 100% on-site storage. This was complicated by the site’s dramatic topography and expedited construction schedule. Working closely with the owner and county officials, we completed this project and obtained permits within two months of project award.
