Engineering Resource Associates has completed the hydraulic analysis of the existing storm sewer and has prepared alternatives for improvements to the drainage area. The City is currently waiting for the final report to be submitted and once this is complete we will evaluate the various alternatives for improvements.
Status March 1, 2017
Engineering Resource Associates will begin the survey on March 2, 2017. Surveyors will be on-site collecting size and elevation information on the existing storm sewer and will also be performing topographical survey of the area.
The City has selected Engineering Resource Associates of Wheaton, Illinois to perform a study of the drainage area tributary to the College and Wilson Street storm sewer system that extends to Mahoney Creek. The purpose of the study is to provide an analysis of the existing storm sewer network and to identify potential bottlenecks to the system which can cause flooding. This is a “Phase I” study only which will include preliminary engineering with recommended capital improvements to the storm network that will alleviate flooding within the area.
The City has experienced localized on street flooding on Wilson Street near its intersection with College Street during moderately intense rain events over the past several years. The objective is to identify locations within the storm sewer system that may need to be enlarged or modified and to develop solutions to address the flooding issues.
