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, weather permitting, the city will install 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 will be installed along residential streets between West Alameda Avenue and West Dakota Avenue.
