We will be removing trash and burned municipal waste from a stream that leads to Fort Branch Creek as well as from City-owned property. Once the trash has been removed, we’ll restore the stream and stabilize the banks.

Project Location

The project is located in the stream that runs between backyards on Delores and Lott Avenues. It also includes 5106 Delores Ave. All work will occur on City property or in easements.

Project Overview

In the past, this area was used as a dumping ground for trash and burned municipal waste for many years. This project includes:

  • Waste removal from 5106 Delores Ave.
  • Waste removal from stream near Mason Ave.
  • Stabilization of eroding stream banks with limestone blocks
  • Replacement trees in the disturbed area

Air quality will be monitored throughout the project.

Timeline and Cost

Our capital improvement projects take many years from start to finish. The process typically 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.

As of September 2020, the project is in the bidding and permitting phase. Construction is anticipated to begin in 2021 and take about six months to complete. The estimated cost is about $4 million.
