Project Update: 9/25/17
Two weeks down and about a week left on the Cottonwood Dr Stormwater Improvements project. Last week, we focused on establishing the new, wider stream channel. This week we removed a section of the old outlet pipe and put the new structures in place, including a new inlet pipe, catch basin and outlet pipe that connected to the existing storm main. The installation went smoothly and Iverson Earth Works, LLC worked with care as they moved the large concrete structures into place. You may notice the material covering the slopes in some of the pictures; this was in place to protect the exposed soil from erosion during the rain we had on Tuesday. Once the new structures were installed, we began backfilling and compacting the material around the pipes. Next week, we will focus on building a berm around the overflow structure, seeding the hillslope and cleaning up the surrounding facilities. Stay tuned for more progress pictures!
