MAYOR HENRY LEADS GROUNDBREAKING FOR FLOOD CONTROL PROJECT

April 22, 2014 - Just one year after Mayor Tom Henry told residents he would move quickly to protect the neighborhood along the Fairfield Ditch, he joined residents to break ground for a flood control project that will protect the area in the future.

The low-lying area along the Fairfield Ditch in Waynedale, in particular along Dalevue Drive and Fernwood Avenue, has experienced chronic flooding since the 1950’s. For more than 10 years, the City worked closely with the Army Corp of Engineers to find solutions for this flood zone area. It was hoped that the project could receive federal assistance, but with federal funds not available and another flood in the area last spring, Mayor Henry took action and moved forward with voluntary buyouts and additional flood protection measures.

“This project is going to have a positive impact as we continue our proactive efforts to protect neighborhoods and invest in our community,” said Mayor Henry. “I’m appreciative of how our Public Works and City Utilities divisions worked together to develop a solution that will enhance the quality of life for residents impacted by past flooding challenges. I also want to thank the residents in the Dalevue-Fernwood area for their commitment and patience throughout this process.”
