The City of Austin’s Watershed Protection Department has been working on the engineering design for the Jamestown Tributary Stream Rehabilitation project. We will be giving a presentation about the project and answering questions at the North Austin Civic Association meeting.
The project will include the following:
To construct this project, we will need to purchase some temporary easements for construction as well as permanent drainage easements. Easements give us a limited right to access or use an area of land. Ownership of the land remains with the property owner.
The temporary easements are needed for us to have access to the creek and room to work. Drainage easements are generally needed either to access and maintain infrastructure or to provide a place for water to flow. Easements should be kept as lawn or flowers. We will be contacting property owners this spring.
Visit the Jamestown Tributary web page for more information.
Many thanks to the North Austin Civic Association for hosting our presentation!
