The project will further improve an inlet and the associated berm constructed in 2017. The earthen berm failed in the November 2021 storm event and caused flooding on private property downstream of the inlet. This project will replace the earthen berm with a concrete retaining wall with an overflow spillway that will assist in keeping flood water within the County right of way and ultimately in County storm sewers.
Birdcage Grate at the Cottonwood Drive Inlet that outfalls directly to Birch Bay.
