Stormwater Projects

 

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



Projects

  • Dixon Avenue Convenience Center Site Improvements
  • Kilarney Drive Storm Drainage Improvements
  • Stonewater Glen Lane Storm Drainage Improvements
  • Summer Lakes Drive Storm Drainage Improvements

  • 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: 
    This project is anticipated to begin November 2016.

    Details: 
    This project will improve the drainage under Summer Lakes Drive by replacing the existing storm drainage pipe with a larger capacity pipe. The improvements are anticipated to consist of:

    • Upsizing the existing culvert
    • Adding several street storm drains to provide adequate street drainage
    • Repaving impacted section of roadway
    This project will result in a temporary road closure of Summer Lakes for a few months during construction.
