Capital Projects & Purchases
The Village's Capital Improvement Program constructs structural improvements that address existing drainage deficiencies and also funds equipment purchases. Equipment purchases used for street cleaning and leaf/limb collections split costs between the enterprise fund and the general fund. Stormwater capital projects are prioritized by the project rating system, as recommended by the Stormwater Advisory Board and approved by the Village Council on an annual basis. Each year the Council approves a potential list of capital projects based on the estimated revenue available for the forthcoming year.
Gardenspring Drive 2014
Project Gardenspring Drive had several occurrences of road flooding due to the stormwater runoff from a section of Interstate 40 and Harper Road. The existing culvert under Gardenspring was undersized and could not convey the impacting stormwater volume. Stormwater funds were used to remove and replace the existing culvert to prevent flooding and reduce the occurrence of road overtopping.
Quinn Street 2013
Quinn Street periodically experienced flooding due to an undersized drainage pipe and inadequate inlet conditions. The quantity of runoff exceeded the allowable amount the culvert could convey. Stormwater funds were used to upgrade the existing drainage system to adequately pass the stormwater runoff and reduce or eliminate the frequency of road overtopping
Knob Hill Drive 2011
This project located just off of Knob Hill Drive was completed at the end of 2011. The Public Works' staff "daylighted" the stream by removing the pipe the stream flowed through and redirected the water through a channel. The goal was to restore the stream back to a more natural state. This project helped reduce flooding and improved water quality in the neighborhood.
