Drainage Improvements

List of Drainage Areas Slated for Improvements


In January, the Village Council unanimously approved an agreement for the planning, design and permitting for drainage improvement in seven priority areas by adopting Resolution 2016-07 (PDF). The seven areas were identified based on the area's historical propensity to experience localized flooding after heavy rainfall events.

The approved areas include the following:
  • Area 1 - SW 87 Avenue from SW 142 Street to SW 143 Street
  • Area 2 - SW 80 Avenue from SW 167th Street to 166th Street
  • Area 3 - SW 80 Avenue from SW 155th Street to End of Cul-de-Sac
  • Area 4 - SW 80 Avenue from SW 152 Street to SW 148 Street
  • Area 5 - East side of SW 84 Court between SW 147 Street and SW 147 Terrace
  • Area 6 - SW 88th Court between SW 156th Street and SW 159th Street
  • Area 7 - SW 145th Terrace between SW 73rd Avenue and SW 74th Avenue
Please contact Public Services to report flooding in your neighborhood, and to schedule an initial assessment of the area. Village staff is responsible for scheduling the implementation of projects and prioritizing based on need.
