2017 City of Green- Regional Stormwater Basin Study
The City of Green is requesting financial assistance to address regional storm water management and flooding. Heavy rain events contribute to regular flooding in the southeastern corner of the City of Green, as well as increased water volume and peak flow into the Zimber Ditch in Stark County. The Regional Stormwater Basin Study will provide for the design of the proposed basin to alleviate this flooding. The project will include the development of an as-built survey, an in-depth review of existing conditions, an environmental review, geotechnical investigation, and development of a preliminary design.
The project will reduce flooding impacts locally in the City of Green and downstream along the Zimber Ditch in Stark County. The project will primarily benefit the residents of the City of Green and the Zimber Ditch Watershed.
