Drainage Improvements

Drainage improvement projects are needed to mitigate neighborhood flooding problems which impact yards, buildings, and/or roads. Drainage projects are funded through the Stormwater Utility. The projects are identified by staff and citizens. Currently these projects are completed through the Neighborhood Drainage Improvement Projects (NDIP) program. Designs are managed by the Stormwater Engineer in the Engineering and Maintenance Division, and construction contracts are awarded through competitive bidding and managed/inspected by the Capital Projects Coordinator. At the present time, projects are generally limited to neighborhood drainage systems, bridges, and large road culverts.

Current Drainage Projects

Fugate Drive and Latrobe Drive Drainage Improvement Project

This project consists of installing a new stormwater system along Fugate and Latrobe Drives in the Chatham Woods Subdivision to alleviate off site flooding affecting properties and homes in the Waverly Hall Subdivision off Five Forks Road.


Recently Completed Drainage Projects

Hipps Drive Drainage Improvement Project

This large drainage improvement project involved installing 800+ feet of large stormwater pipe and numerous catch basins to collect and convey stormwater runoff that was previously flowing overland from Fowler Road, Burdette Road, and the surrounding areas. This overland water was impacting numerous properties during heavier rain events, causing erosion and flooding.


Dewberry Lane Culvert Lining:

While in the area for other maintenance activities, the maintenance superintendent discovered the 96" corrugated metal culvert under Dewberry Lane was failing due to nearing the end of its service life. Instead of replacing the pipe, it was elected to line it with a fiber reinforced cementitious material. This method is much cheaper and causes less disturbance to the road and surrounding residents.
