Stormwater & Drainage Master Plan

Drainage Problem Areas in Jamestown

In late 2016, the Town commenced a Drainage and Stormwater Management Master Plan. The plan was a recommendation of the Hazard Investigation and Risk Assessment Study and will be a more detailed evaluation of local drainages, recommendations on addressing issues, and conceptual design of priority solutions. Complete: Summer 2017.

  • Funding: $100,000 Community Development Block Grant – Disaster Recovery Round 3
    • Drainage study to find solutions to drainage issues
    • Identification of stormwater management opportunities
    • 30% design for priority solutions

The Town would like to gratefully acknowledge the support of the Department of Local Affairs (DOLA) in this project.
