Stormwater Projects

 

The Water Resources Department implements improvements to the storm sewer system to prevent flooding and property damage. Improvements include adding or repairing catch basins, pipes (excluding residential rain gutters and downspouts), sewers, drains, culverts, open ditches, creeks and rivers that carry unpolluted stormwater runoff.

Equipment Wash Stations
Kilarney Drive Storm Drainage Improvements
Stonewater Glen Lane Storm Drainage Improvements

Equipment Wash Stations

WakeMed Soccer Park & USA Baseball National Training Complex/Thomas Brooks Park

Overview

This project provides for the construction of two equipment wash stations – one at WakeMed Soccer Park and the other at USA Baseball National Training Complex/Thomas E. Brooks Park.

Details

To accommodate the amount of landscape maintenance equipment in use at these two facilities, this project will install an equipment wash station at each site with an oil/water separator connected to sanitary sewer system.  The wash area will be covered in order to minimize storm water infiltration into the sanitary sewer system.

Schedule

Construction is anticipated to begin February 2016.

Kilarney Drive Storm Drainage Improvements

Overview

This project was identified by citizens in Kildaire Farm Subdivision and focuses on improving the storm drainage in Kilarney Drive near Brendan Choice. The existing storm drainage system is undersized for the volume of stormwater runoff at this location. As a result, adjacent private property and road flooding occurs during large rain events.

The project is funded through the Stormwater Capital Improvement Requests – Public Property Project (Policy Statement 146).

Details

The improvements are anticipated to consist of:

  • Upsizing the existing culvert and adding a pipe in the public right-of-way
  • Installing additional street storm drains to provide adequate street drainage
  • Relocating existing water lines and service lines
  • Replacing a section of sanitary sewer
  • Repaving impacted section of roadway

 

This project will result in temporary road and lane closures of Kilarney Drive during construction.  Temporary traffic control signage and detours will be posted accordingly. In addition, both public and private utility relocations and interruptions will be necessary to include: sanitary sewer, water, Duke Energy, AT&T, PSNC, and TWC. Most of the private utility relocations will occur prior to construction beginning and will be conducted by others.

Schedule

Detailed design work is underway. Relocation of private utilities (by others) is anticipated to occur beginning as early as the first quarter of 2016 and may extend into the second quarter of 2016.   Construction is anticipated to begin in the spring of 2016.
