Background

The stormwater system on Sierra Drive includes open channels (streams) and pipes. The pipes drain to Balboa Road toward Lawrence Drive. Eventually, the system leads to pipes underneath I-40. We need to update the system so that the area doesn't flood.

The Study

The preliminary study was done in three phases:

  • Looking at the condition;
  • Determining alternatives; and,
  • Working on the preliminary plan. 

The goal is to study, analyze, and implement project(s) to alleviate structure/public street flooding and erosion.
