CIP 610778 Oakwood Avenue Storm Water System Improvements

Stone Environmental was contracted with the City of Columbus for the evaluation and design of storm water system improvements for a stretch of Oakwood Avenue north of Smith Road located in south Columbus. The area had not been served with storm sewers, and yard flooding was common during times of heavy rain.

As part of the city’s sustainable initiatives, alternative storm water management methods and technologies that are environmentally beneficial, such as bioswales, were evaluated for the area. Homeowner involvement was solicited via information meetings, and detailed construction drawings and contract documents will be prepared for public bid.

This project demonstrates Stone Environmental’s ability to design storm water improvements that fit into an existing drainage area.
