The Garden Grove Subdivision is a mature development without adequate stormwater infrastructure necessary to handle the high ground water levels and drainage issues that have worsened over the years. The Panther Street ditch is an open drainage ditch in close proximity to Garden Grove and is affected by Garden Grove infrastructure as water flows into the ditch from Garden Grove subdivision.
On November 17, 2014, City Council authorized a Work Order to England-Thims & Miller, Inc. (ETM) to perform a drainage investigation to assist the City in identifying the cause of property saturation and localized flooding. The investigation identified the need for stormwater improvements to include the installation of an underdrain system within the Garden Grove subdivision. Since the flow from Garden Grove subdivision affects the open drainage ditch located along Panther Street, it is prudent and cost effective to include design of both projects under one work order. The proposed improvements along Panther Street include the installation of a closed-pipe draining system along Panther Street to replace the current open ditch. This will help maintain and enhance stormwater management.
The total cost of the project is $69,819.86 for Design Services by ETM. On April 4, 2016, City Council approved Resolution No. 3167-16. Once the Notice to Proceed is received by ETM, work shall begin and is projected to be completed by September 30, 2016.
