Existing Conditions This existing storm sewer system has insufficient capacity. Runoff cannot effectively get to Charles Brown Park Reservoir and there are no safe overflow routes. The high-water level of the reservoir is also higher than certain roadway sags (low areas) in the neighborhood.
Proposed Improvements Install new main line storm sewer along Rockland Road to Nicholas Dowden Park and construct laterals along Shari Lane, Dymond Road and Drake, Carter, Burdick and Ames Streets. Sewer intake and conveyance capacity will be increased. In addition, construct an 18 acre-foot detention basin in Nicholas Dowden Park - South.
