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.

  • Data collection
  • Lidar data
  • Site visits
  • Kick-off open house
  • Issues mapping

Currently working on:

  • Modeling
  • Initial concepts

Also: Ayers Associates (our selected engineering team) will be updating the Jamestown Board of Trustees on March 6, 2017 on their progress so far. Be looking for information regarding a Community Open House to be held in March. Date TBA.
