7th Avenue Flood Mitigation Project - Update

On either Thursday, September 7, or Friday, September 8, the City’s contractor will have a scuba diver in Capital Lake for the purpose of locating a stormwater outfall pipe as part of the 7th Avenue Flood Mitigation project. The stormwater outfall pipe will be temporarily plugged in order to complete construction of the underground flood control structure. The overall project is expected to be complete by mid-September, 2017. When completed, this project will significantly reduce the number of flooding occurrences during major storm events and when Capital Lake levels are high.
