This project is funded using federal ARPA funds.

Current Status:
  • 50% designed
  • Estimated construction to begin in summer 2024

Pond Retrofit


Round Elementary Pond Restoration
This project will renovate existing dry pond to include necessary pond maintenance and a culvert replacement under Godwin Drive. The renovated pond will enhance pollutant removal for the contributing watershed while maintaining the same level of detention (flood control), through dredging and new plantings. Of particular importance is the need for additional conveyance capacity under Godwin Drive to reduce flooding caused by excessive headwater on the Godwin Drive culvert during larger storm events. A section of Godwin Drive will be closed during the culvert replacement. This project is funded using federal ARPA funds.

Features:
  • Raising the dam embankment
  • Excavating the ponding area
  • Replacing the existing principal drop inlet spillway system and overland emergency spillway with a combined drop inlet spillway system
  • Replacing the current culvert under Godwin Drive with a higher capacity box culvert
Current Status:
  • 90% designed  
  • Estimated construction to begin in summer 2024
  • Community meeting scheduled for 5:30 PM on February 27, 2024 at George C. Round Elementary School
