Chippewa Creek Flood Reduction at Echo Lane Project
This project will alleviate flooding and reduce flood risks in Broadview Heights
Our Regional Stormwater Management Program addresses water quality, flooding, and erosion issues throughout our service area, which includes the Cities of Broadview Heights and North Royalton. As part of the program, the Sewer District is continuing its project to reduce flooding in the Echo Lane area of Broadview Heights and North Royalton.
The Chippewa Creek Flood Reduction at Echo Lane Project will alleviate flooding and reduce flooding risks to the neighborhood in Broadview Heights including homes along Echo Lane, West Ridge Drive, and Twin Oaks Drive. The project includes elements to increase the stormwater storage volume in the neighborhood to reduce flooding potential, including modifying and expanding an existing detention basin, restoring 1,220 feet of stream with expanded floodplain, and daylighting 325 feet of culverted stream. Construction cost will be less than $9 million.
