Document Description
The Applicant will be abandoning approximately 500 feet of existing storm drain culvert that is nearly 100- years old, undersized, and failing. The portion of the system requiring emergency repair is the 115' long downstream section that crosses beneath Myrtle Avenue. Replacing only the heavily failing portion of culvert beneath Myrtle Avenue, in-place and in-kind will not be possible as the entire system is currently undersized and in disrepair. The proposed plan is to replace the 115' long section of the existing culvert with a new larger culvert relocated approximately 40' to the northwest. As a result of the reposition and size increase of the new culvert, the remaining portion of the existing system will no longer function. For the system to function, a new stream channel will need to be excavated and reconnected to the existing channel (both upstream and downstream). In order to meet current standards and promote environmental stewardship, the new culvert and stream channel will be designed to pass a 100-year design storm event and allow for fish passage.
