This project will help improve safety and reduce flood risks to people and property in the Valverde and Athmar Park neighborhoods, two areas of town known to flood. Beginning in mid-February, the city installed a larger stormwater pipe along West Alameda Avenue from Bryant to Decatur Streets, which will provide more capacity to carry and drain stormwater in this area. In addition, lateral storm pipes were installed along residential streets between West Alameda Avenue and West Dakota Avenue.
