Flood project begins


Work got under way Tuesday on a storm water project in the Castleridge Drive subdivision, where several residences have been known to have basements flood or other water seepage issues with heavy rainfall.

The neighborhood sits on a hill off Lexington Drive, and runoff from storm water makes its way freely down the hill and eventually ends up at the drainage basin in front of McPeak Vision Partners off North Race Street. This project will corral that water into a 24-inch pipe as it comes off an existing concrete flume, or ditch, farther up the hill. Farther down, the pipe diameter will be 30 inches.

The pipe route will go between Hummingbird Lane and Robin Drive down to and underneath Cranbrook Drive to connect with an existing 48-inch line at the back of a property on Cranbrook, said Danny Thrasher, assistant superintendent for the Department of Public Works, who was on the site Tuesday.

The primary task for that day was to locate existing utility lines and determine their depth so the new line is built enough above that so as not to interfere with them. Two holes had been dug by early afternoon that revealed lines for power, communications and sewer, and another was beside the catch basin where water goes into that 48-inch line.
