Hills of Hays Drainage Improvements

Hills of Hays CIP

The Hills of Hays subdivision has a history of reported property and structural flooding during large rainfall events.  

Instead of addressing drainage issues for each specific location, the City is taking a holistic approach in evaluating neighborhood-wide drainage issues and developing drainage improvements.  The project is being conducted in the following phases:

Phase 1 (completed) included conducting a drainage evaluation with findings and recommendations presented in a Preliminary Engineering Report (PER).  The PER proposed improvements consisted of new curb and gutters, storm sewer systems and a drainage ditch. Proposed improvements also considered comments received during a public meeting.

Phase 2 (on-going) consists of developing drainage improvement designs, construction plans and documents.
