The Southeast Lakes Drainage Improvement Project will enhance the stormwater system in the Lake Cherokee and Delaney Park neighborhoods. These enhancements will reduce flooding during heavy rainfalls by quickly diverting the stormwater runoff from the street surface. These improvements will be done by creating connections between various lakes, and therefore will be broken up into phases.
Current Phase: Lake Davis to Greenwood Drainage Connection
The current phase of construction will connect Lake Davis to Greenwood Wetlands. This connection will improve drainage and stormwater flow in the entire southeast lakes basin. Improvements will include the construction of a storm sewer system consisting of concrete pipes, control structures, manholes, storm inlets, and baffle boxes. These improvements will allow stormwater to be quickly diverted off of the streets making them safer and easier to travel. Additionally, the various stormwater structures will lessen the impacts of nutrient laden stormwater runoff on lake water quality.
