Stormwater Drainage and Water Quality Improvement Projects
Projects Under Construction
11th and Harrison Area Storm Drainage Project
This project will include installation of a new 54" storm drainage system in Harrison Street from 11th Street to 14th Street and new ADA approved walk ramps on the north side.
40th from South to Van Dorn - Water Main Project
The project includes the installation of a new six-inch water main. Local access will be maintained at all times, however access to side streets and driveways may be restricted for brief periods. The City and the contractor, HR Bookstrom, will work with local residents on access issues. Brief water service outages may occur in conjunction with this work.
75th and Dotson Area Water Main Replacement Project
The scope of this work will involve the abandonment of the existing water main in 75th St. and Dotson Rd. and the installation of a new main. The work area includes 75th St. from Steinway Rd. to Dotson Rd. and Dotson Rd. from 75th St. to Broadview Dr.
Stormwater Improvement Bond Issues
Stormwater improvement bond issues provide for design and construction of urban storm drainage projects, flood reduction projects, stream rehabilitation and waterway work, design and construction of master planned basin projects, water quality projects incorporating best management practices, and preliminary engineering for basin master plans to determine future projects. These improvements reduce stormwater runoff and flooding if major rains occur, reduce flooding impacts from major stream channels, prevent or repair degraded stream channels, and improve water quality.
Antelope Park Stream Improvements, Sheridan Street to South Street
Key elements include grade stabilization structures to reduce the erosion in the stream, bio-retention areas to reduce flow and encourage stormwater to infiltrate into the ground, wetland enhancements, rain gardens and selective plantings to act as a buffer and filter stormwater before it reaches the stream.
Antelope Park Bioretention Areas SW of 33rd and South
This project will consist of creating two bioretention areas that will treat and remove pollutants from water flowing through the area.
Antelope Park from "A" to South Streets
This project aims to improve stormwater quality, reduce stormwater flow velocities, and provide environmental education opportunities for the general public.
Lincoln Children's Zoo Water Quality and Educational Project
Major features of this project include a "green" roof on the Animal Kingdom Building, bioretention and bioswale areas, permeable pavers and a rainwater cistern to collect roof runoff. Educational aspects of the project will be promoted through educational signage, an observation deck that will allow public viewing of the “green” roof, and an interactive educational area near the rainwater cistern.
