Two underground systems from ADS added to the high quality of Audi Stadium, D.C. United’s home field, which will also host multiple other events. 


242 StormTech MC-3500 chambers were installed under the field and in bio-retention sites outside the stadium for a total volume of 51,142 gallons (232,496 liters) of stormwater detention. StormTech chambers were chosen as they met stormwater management requirements, reduced storage footprint due to being shipped on pallets and were delivered just prior to installation. For soil separation, ADS 0601TG geotextile was utilized on top of the chambers and ADS 315WTM geotextile was used for scour protection below the chambers.

ADS perforated HDPE pipe was utilized to drain the playing surface. The pipe may also be hooked to a blower, which will blow warm or cool air through the system, to help maintain and nurture the natural grass turf. Over 10,000' (3,000 meters) of pipe was installed in just 15 days.

Microsoft will be phasing out Internet Explorer soon. Because of this, we did not build the site to be used with IE. Please use Chrome, Edge or another browser to fully experience the new ADS website. .
