The Erie Street CDBG Storm Water Improvements Project is a project designed to improve storm water drainage to minimize flooding in the Erie Street area. The project involves constructing a conveyance system that will include a combination of permeable pavers, rain gardens, bio swales, and tree wells which will work in combination to mimic natural processes to restore natural hydrology and improve water quality. The proposed conveyance system will allow some stormwater to infiltrate the surface and reduce runoff. In addition to reducing runoff, the system components will trap suspended solids and capture water bourne pollutants, which significantly reduces the pollutant loading of the area.
As a part of keeping residents and visitors up to date on the progress of this project the City is keeping a blog on the project that will include project updates and pictures of the progress. The blog can be found here:
