FSU is well on the way to removing approximately 16 inches of soil around the entire inside bowl of the stadium. The stadium floor has been scraped down to the clay level where work will begin to install a new irrigation system that installs beneath the new drainage system. Once work is completed to install the irrigation system pipes they will be covered and work will begin on the new drainage system, the first in nearly 20 years at Doak S. Campbell Stadium.
FSU will actually install two new state-of-the-art gravity drainage systems. One system will be designed to evacuate water coming from the stands and a separate system will process the water falling on the field itself.
