The James and Eloise Drainage Maintenance Project proposes the replacement of 519 linear feet of corrugated steel pipe (CMP). The existing CMP is failing along the bottom portion of the pipe and has failed in some areas. The pipe replacement work proposes a new replacement pipe located on the same alignment (location) as the existing CMP and the same equivalent pipe size. Three existing drainage inlets will be replaced with the proposed work.
Phase 1 work is scheduled to occur this fall, the driest time of the year and following two consecutive dry years. Dry conditions are anticipated during replacement of the existing CMP. Project work is scheduled to occur in two construction phases. Phase 1 extends from Emerald Bay Road over to the easterly side of James Avenue. Phase 2 will extend between James Avenue to 20 feet east of Eloise Avenue to allow discharge of stormwater into an existing water quality treatment basin. Phase 2 work will occur in a later year when sufficient budget is available, a drainage easement is acquired between James and Eloise Avenues, and site conditions allow.
Phase 2 work will include a sand-oil separator or other stormwater filtration device. Existing drainage inlets will be replaced within Phase 2 of the Project and new junction boxes and drainage inlets will be placed within the Eloise Avenue public right-of-way or within the easement acquired on the property located between James and Eloise Avenues.
All work will be subject to installing and maintaining best management practices during construction and providing traffic control when the work is located within the public rights-of-way of James and Eloise Avenues.
