Edinburgh Estates Drainage Improvement

HISTORICAL BACKGROUND

Currently a drainage easement exists along the north of Lots 18 through 27 of the Edinburgh Estates Unit 6 Subdivision Plat. Within this easement a depressional area exists which provides storage prior to being discharged across Old Bainbridge Road to View Pointe Pond. Over time silt and grit from runoff has been deposited in this depressional area and has reduced the storage volume available. In addition, the combined offsite flow from the south of Old Bainbridge Road and the adjacent overland flow overwhelm the existing roadside conveyance system. Consequently, the flood stage within the area encroaches into the backyard of the lots described above.

The primary objective of this project is to reduce the flood stage impacts to the drainage easement within the project area.

On February 3, 2011, an Open House Meeting was held for the Proposed Edinburgh Estates Drainage Improvements. In response to citizens’ comments and concerns during the Public Meeting, county staff and the consultant explored alternate designs while achieving similar flood reduction for the affected area.

 

 

PROPOSED IMPROVEMENTS

The drainage easement along the north of Lots 18 through 27 receives runoff from approximately 64 acres of contributing area. The proposed improvements will intercept approximately 19.5 acres of the total 64-acre contributing area and route flow to the existing discharge point of the Edinburgh Estates Drainage Easement.
