North Parkway Drainage System - COMPLETED

Author: Posted on: Aug 26, 2016

An update on the North Parkway Drainage system, the system is now complete. This area was set up for long term flood mitigation. This area is a catchment basin for a large portion of the town’s storm runoff water. It was deepened and engineered to handle higher volumes of flow, require less future maintenance and provide a natural scrubbing system to make sure the water leaving the drainway to the Vermilion River has been cleaned using natural processes. The area will become a very nice leisure spot for evening walks or picnics in the future, with the option of residential development nearby in future years as well.
