Blueberry Lane Stormwater Improvements

Project Description

Blueberry Lane experiences street flooding during the wet winter months. The existing storm drainage system collects and conveys the stormwater runoff to an infiltration facility. This project would rehabilitate or replace the system with a new infiltration system designed to today’s stormwater regulations.

The design phase will be initiated in 2019. The City recently and successfully applied for a stormwater grant from the Department of Ecology. The proposed award consists of a $2,633,250 grant and a low interest loan of $877,750 with the intent to fully fund the project. If state legislation approves Ecology’s budget as proposed, the award will be available July 1st, 2019.

Project Update

The City completed the design consultant selection process in the earlier part of June. The contract was awarded to BHC Consultants in July, who subsequently has begun the design phase. This phase will continue throughout the remainder of 2019 and into the first months of 2020. Construction is targeted for the summer of 2020.
