Project Information


South Wayne Place contains the lowest elevation point in the east Dunhurst subdivision, while receiving storm water from almost the entire residential area through underground piping, but more importantly, large amounts of overland flow.   

This proposed construction project intends to complete storm sewer installation under East and South Wayne Place, as well as on a section of Merle Lane, in order to reduce overland flow, as well as redirect much of the existing storm sewer flow south to an existing 48” storm sewer pipe on the Twain School property. Redirecting the storm water flow will provide a reduction in hydraulic pressure on the intersection, not completely solving but reducing the instances and severity of localized flooding.
