This project will improve the storm drain system in the East Bouldin area between South First Street and Congress Ave. It will help protect the area from localized flooding.


Localized flooding occurs when the manmade storm drain system of pipes and ditches is overwhelmed by heavy rainfall. Localized flooding occurs away from creeks.

The preliminary engineering report calls for installing new storm drain pipes and upgrading existing ones along several streets, including:

  • Annie St,
  • Mary St.
  • Johanna St.
  • Crockett St.
  • Wilson St.
  • Eva St.
  • Newton St.

The proposed storm drain system will work with the new storm drain system on Mary St., installed in 2020. Together, the systems will reduce the risk of flooding.

Status and Timeline

Our capital improvement process includes the following phases:

  • Preliminary Engineering – when a solution is identified and costs are estimated.
  • Design – when the details are worked out and construction plans drawn up.
  • Bidding and Permitting – when a contractor is hired and all permits are acquired.
  • Construction – when the project is built.

This project is currently in design with construction estimated to begin in 2025.
