Approximately 36 acres were drained by an existing open ditch in a residential area. Residents in the area were subjected to frequent flooding and property damage during storm conditions. In order to stabilize the ditch and prevent flooding, the ditch was replaced with 1465 linear feet of 36-, 30- and 24-inch storm drainage pipe. Several catch basins were located at strategic points to collect immediate surface runoff. The drainage improvements provided an aesthetically pleasing solution and answered the safety concerns of area residents.
