Design

We selected and finalized the contract with WK Dickson to finish the design for this project. They will: 

  • Use information from the 60 percent design plans already finished; 
  • Update the plans to reflect the most recent conditions in the neighborhood; and, 
  • Support the project during construction. 

Ongoing Work

Crews are now surveying and assessing the project site to complete the design.

Public Meeting & Feedback

There was a public meeting on May 25. You can also provide feedback about your recent experience with flooding and erosion in the neighborhood. The survey will close on June 18.

History

This project is located along the western drainage basin to the North Ridge Country Club Lake, which is in the Perry Creek watershed.

 A history of flooding events in the area resulted in public meetings in April and June 2006, which initiated this stormwater project. An engineering study was completed in December 2006, which recommended improvements to the existing storm drainage systems at Tanbark Way, two locations on Harps Mill Road, and the system crossings at Grist Mill Road.

Improvements

Improvements will be made in this area where the stream channel is restricted and where there is severe erosion. The downstream channel also will be repaired to address flooding and stream erosion concerns along this portion of the stream.

The project may also include water quality improvements to meet regulatory requirements and to address water quality concerns within the Perry Creek watershed.
