STORMWATER IMPROVEMENT PROJECTS
LINCOLN ST. & ABRIENDO AVE. INTERSECTION STORMWATER IMPROVEMENTS
This intersection has an undersized stormsewer system that results in frequent flooding from moderate storm events. Improvements will include removing approximately 1100 LF of existing infrastructure and replacing it with a larger capacity stormsewer system. Inclusion of a Stormceptor in this system will help improve water quality.
Estimated Cost = $1,100,000
29TH STREET PUMP STATION REPLACEMENT
An existing pump station that serves to remove storm runoff that collects at a low point near the intersection of I-25 and 29th St. has failed on several occasions and poses a public safety concern. Improvements will include constructing a new pump station in an area away from the low point location to improve capacity, public safety, and maintenance issues. The existing wet well will be converted into an oil/grit separator to help enhance water quality.
Estimated Cost = $2,000,000
29TH STREET PHASE 1 & PHASE 2 STORMSEWER IMPROVEMENTS
This project consists of installing new drainage improvements in West 29th St. between Adrian Ave. & Franklin Ave. and also channel improvements along Alabama Ave. between 23rd St. & 29th St. Currently, flooding causes erosion of private property. The proposed improvements will alleviate current flooding problems in this area and thus improve water quality.
Estimated Cost = $2,400,000
FOUNTAIN CREEK FLOOD DAMAGE IMPROVEMENTS
FEMA is assisting the City of Pueblo with a large project under the FEMA-4229-DR-CO declaration. The City is seeking financial assistance for paying the City's obligation (25% of the project cost). FEMA's public assistance professionals consider alternatives and establish the selected method of reconstruction per their policy.
Estimated Cost = $860,000
STORMWATER MAINTENANCE EQUIPMENT
The Current single vacuum truck owned by the Stormwater Dept. has been breaking down consistently due to age. Replacing the vacuum truck with a new model is necessary for performing maintenance operations. Storm sewer pipe inspection equipment is necessary to determine the condition of the storm sewer pipe system and help locate pipes prior to construction projects.
Estimated Cost = $640,000
