Proposed Upgrades

The following changes will help reduce flooding and allow stormwater to flow through the system more easily when it rains. 

  • Raise part of Glenbrook Drive and Dacian Road; 
  • Replace stormwater pipes at both street crossings; 
  • Improve stream channel about 300 ft. upstream from the pipes; and, 
  • Upgrade the stormwater system that goes past Elmhurst Circle. 

Public Meeting

Stormwater staff hosted a public meeting on Tuesday, November 8, 2022. Attendees had the opportunity to discuss the current status of the improvement project and provide feedback or concerns.
