Project Overview

The purpose of this project is to prevent long-term high-water levels within landlocked regional basins EP-027A and EP-034. This improvement project includes the construction of two separate stormwater emergency pumping systems to periodically draw down the regional basins. This will be accomplished by the use of trailer-mounted portable pumps and a combination of forcemain and gravity conveyance to pump stormwater south to Basin EP-036A with an expected lifespan of 50 years.

Total Project Cost: Approx. $610, 300:

  • 14.5% funded by the Developer (Watermark Properties/Canvas of IGH)
