The City of Columbia Stormwater Utility is holding an interested parties meeting Wednesday, Aug. 21, from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. in Conference Room 1A in City Hall, 701 E. Broadway, to discuss the upcoming stormwater project located southeast of Aldeah Avenue and West Ash Street intersection. Information and diagrams showing the preliminary plans will be available for public review and City staff will be present to answer questions.
In an effort to prevent a collapse of the failing storm drainage pipe and more effectively manage the flow of stormwater in this area, this proposed project would replace approximately 320 feet of failing vitrified clay pipe (VCP). The plan also includes lining approximately 190 feet of VCP. Investment for this project is estimated at $150,000 which will be paid for from the Stormwater Utility &8288;- Enterprise Revenue Fund.
This meeting is the first step in the standard project process and it could two to three years before construction begins. Staff will present the construction plan and explain any impacts the project could have on residents in the area.
