We are designing cost-effective and efficient stormwater solutions in this area of North Point Breeze to capture, hold, and slowly release stormwater runoff.
Progress & Status
This area flows to the A-42 Sewershed; one of the largest sewersheds and highest combined sewer overflow contributors to the overall sewer system. This project aims to manage runoff from 12 impervious acres in the surrounding area.
Phase One Stormwater Solutions:
- Gravel stormwater storage under the medians of Thomas and McPherson Boulevards
- Permeable paver parking lanes along North Linden Avenue with underground gravel stormwater storage
- Gravel stormwater storage under the road along North Dallas Avenue
- Permeable paver "green alley" with underground gravel stormwater storage in Starling Way
In coordination with the stormwater project, we will replace the existing water mains on McPherson Boulevard and all public and private lead service lines along McPherson Boulevard between Fifth Avenue and North Dallas Avenue and along North Linden and North Dallas avenues from McPherson to Thomas boulevards. By coordinating the stormwater, water main replacement, and lead service line replacement projects, we will minimize disruptions and more efficiently manage costs.
- This project is partially funded by ALCOSAN’s GROW grant program.
