South Street

A resident located on South Street informed the City of a flooding issue located at the intersection of South Street and the rail road crossing. The citizen had stated that during heavy to minor rain events the street would flood. The floods ranged from minor nuisances to ponding across roadway. After a careful investigation, the Storm Dept. was able to find that the underground infrastructure was undersized for the amount of area drainage that was designed to sheet flow into the Storm system located at that particular intersection. The City was able to perform corrections in-house; thus saving on cost and utilizing current City workforce.
