West Fork Sand Creek

Construction crews finished an emergency repair project in July 2016 to stabilize the channel on West Fork Sand Creek near Maizeland Road and Radiant Drive. The City has been working with FEMA to repair the channel after 2015 storms eroded part of the channel and a private property immediately behind it. However, the June 12 storm caused further damage prompting City officials to make emergency repairs to hold the channel until the permanent fix could be made.

Repairs have held up well thanks to the thorough job done by crews that we will not have to go in again later this summer to make additional repairs. This means the FEMA dollars for this project can now be applied to other higher priority needs in the city that qualify
