ENGINEERING DEPARTMENT UPDATE – April 5, 2017
Royalton Road WM Replacement – Phase 2:
Plans are currently being finalized to submit to Cleveland Water for approval to replace approximately 1,940 LF of 12” watermain between State Road and Prince Charles Drive along the north side of Royalton Road. This project is being funded 100% by the CWD and will be out for bid soon.
Cedar Estates Regional Basin:
This project is the last remaining project that the City planned to undertake as part of the $5 million capital project list that began back in 2007/2008. This project will take approximately 180 days to complete and when completed will help relieve erosion and flooding issues downstream along Baldwin Creek in the Cedar Estates area.
The project was bid and Council has approved the bid. Contracts to be finalized next week and work to commence within a week after that. The trees have already been cleared to make way for this project. More details to follow.
With the recent rains that have occurred throughout the area this spring, it is important to remember your responsibility as a homeowner to keep all ditches, swales and drainage ways on your property “free and clear”. Failure to keep these areas unobstructed can result in flooding in areas not intended to flood. Remove leaves, twigs and garbage from ditches that may obstruct the flow of storm water so that the water can travel along it’s intended path.
