Haverhill Stormwater Improvements Project

In Planning Stormwater

We are planning stormwater improvements to address a groundwater seep and related slope stability issues at City-owned vacant properties on Haverhill Street at the intersection of the East Hills and Homewood neighborhoods.

Progress & Status

Design Complete

A groundwater seep on Haverhill Street is contributing to erosion and sediment control issues in the area. These issues are negatively impacting a stormwater infrastructure project that was constructed in 2016 at the intersection of Oakwood and Batavia Streets. More information about the Oakwood and Batavia Project is available on our Rosedale Runoff Reduction Project webpage.

The Haverhill Stormwater Improvements Project aims to improve slope stability on City-owned property, improve drainage for seep flows in the public right of way, and reduce sediment from reaching the stormwater infrastructure and the combined sewer system. To ensure the functionality of existing stormwater infrastructure at Oakwood and Batavia Streets, repair and/or improvements to that infrastructure will also be evaluated. 

Project Components: 

  • Install sediment and erosion controls within City-owned property to stabilize disturbed slopes
  • Resurface impacted road area on Haverhill Street and improve roadway drainage
  • Repair or improve existing stormwater infrastructure at Oakwood and Batavia intersection
