Project Background

The Ferley Consolidated Drain Maintenance and Improvement Project results from a July 27, 2015 petition submitted by landowners within the Drainage District. Petitioners wanted the drainage improved to alleviate the repeated flooding of properties and homes. On September 21, 2015, the petition was found necessary by a statutory Board of Determination. The proposed Project includes the installation of enclosed storm sewer and storm structures to improve drainage in flooded areas primarily adjacent to Dell Road, east and west of Pine Tree Road; the improvement of multiple Drain inlets; and the brushing and clearing of obstructions of the main Drain open channel just upstream of its outlet to Sycamore Creek.
