Storm Delays Stormwater Project Near Elementary School

Crews were working on a significant stormwater project to address localized flooding near Taylor Elementary School in the Patty Jewett neighborhood when Wednesday’s (July 27, 2017) storm caused significant damage to the project area.

This area is a central gathering point for much of the water that drains through the Patty Jewett neighborhood. Because there is currently no curb and gutter along this portion of Arcadia Street water has nowhere to go and has caused localized flooding in the past.

Phase One of Monument Branch Stabilization Complete

Work is complete on the first of three phases of construction to stabilize Monument Branch, a natural waterway near I-25 and Voyager that empties onto the Air Force Academy. Crews addressed an area of severe erosion that threatened utilities infrastructure crossing the channel by building sculpted concrete drop structures to stair step, or slow the rate water reaches the channel bottom, re-grading the channel and banks, and planting new vegetation to protect City infrastructure.
