Drainage Improvements

Project Description Status
Arundel Storm Drain Improvements A new storm drain will be installed on Arundel, Encanto and Bellaire Circle. Additional inlets will be installed on Arundel and Bellaire Circle. A new outfall in the channel will also be constructed. As part of this project, water and wastewater improvements will be made on Arundel. Construction
Bellaire Park Court Drainage Improvements This project includes the design of a detention pond overflow structure, storm drain improvements on Bellaire Park Court, and storm drain improvements along Bellaire Drive South from Bellaire Park Court to the Howard’s Branch outfall, approximately 200 feet west of Overton Park Drive East. The project is a joint effort with the Water Department's water and sanitary sewer line replacement project. Construction
Lower Como Creek Erosion Control Improvements Residences along Como Creek below Lake Como are experiencing severe erosion issues. Severely eroded creek banks will be protected with structural (concrete) and non-structural measures like articulating concrete block and turf reinforcing mats. For additional slope stability, the creek banks will be revegetated with plants and grasses that thrive in the shade. Construction

The first phase includes installation of pipe inlets on Surrey Street from Suffolk Drive to Seminary Drive. Future project phases will install large diameter pipes and storm drain inlets to the north and south of the first phase. Phase one is complete and design is underway for phase two. Design
