7th Ave Flood Mitigation Project - Diver Update

Due to unfavorable weather conditions, the scuba diver that was scheduled to be in Capital Lake on Friday, September 8, has been postponed until Monday September 11, weather permitting. The scuba diver will be in Capital Lake for the purpose of locating and temporarily plugging a stormwater outfall pipe in order to complete construction of the 7th Avenue Flood Mitigation project. The overall project is expected to be complete by mid-September, 2017. When finished, this project will significantly reduce the number of flooding occurrences during major storm events and when Capital Lake levels are high.
