Brookhaven, GA, December 14, 2016 – by Trey Benton – The City of Brookhaven approved $455,054.85 for a storm drain project to relieve drainage issues in rear yards of homes on Stratfield Drive. According to the City, the yards that are adjacent to Johnson Ferry Road near the intersection with Ashford Dunwoody Road, have been experiencing flooding because the shoulder along Johnson Ferry has changed in the past year due to utility work.
The main contributor to the drainage problems, the City says, is tree removal and modified drainage patterns. A hydrology study and stormwater analysis report shows the modified drainage patterns has adversely impacted these residences and outlines the recommended remedies.
The City has selected Blount Construction to complete the project in two phases. Each phase will be comprised of erosion control, grading, concrete paving, storm drainage and landscaping.
Funding for this project will come from the City’s Stormwater Utility Fund.
