Design

WK Dickson is working on the design for the project. This includes: 

  • Using information from the 60 percent design plans already finished; 
  • Updating the plans to reflect the most recent conditions in the neighborhood. They surveyed and assessed the project site in order to complete the design; and,  
  • Supporting the project during construction. 

We need to complete more design work for this project. The design phase is now expected to finish in late fall 2021. We'll keep you updated on any other changes. 

Public Meeting & Feedback

There was a public meeting on May 25. A community survey also was available to provide feedback until June 18.  The consultant and staff are now reviewing survey results.

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.
