New Plan for Storm Drains Considered

An updated plan that assesses the city's storm drain needs will be considered for adoption by the City Council today.

In August 1996, the council hired Berryman & Henigar of Santa Ana, consulting engineers, to prepare a new master plan for drainage for the city.

The $30,000 study analyzed the existing storm drain system and looked at implications of 10-year and 100-year storms.

The study found deficiencies in the drainage system and suggests ways to ensure a flood-free community, such as recommendations about the size and location of future storm drains.

Two storm drain projects for Taft and Serrano avenues were mentioned in the study, estimated to cost $225,000 each. Mayer said the projects are not yet scheduled or funded, but are priorities in the city's capital improvement plan.

The meeting begins at 7:30 p.m. in council chambers, 17855 Santiago Blvd.
