2018 Storm Sewer Improvements Project


Riverside Park will be closed on Monday (June 8) and Tuesday (June 9) for storm sewer construction taking place on Main Street.

Crews will be installing storm sewer pipes on the north side of Main Street, east of Oak Street to Riverside Park (weather permitting).  During this work, Riverside Park will be inaccessible.  Please see the map below showing the work area.

Project Descriptions

Storm sewer improvements in two areas will be implemented beginning in Fall 2018. During construction, impacts to traffic should be minimal with occasional spot lane or road closures occurring as needed.

Area 1: Jonathan Carver Parkway (JCP) Improvements

Increased runoff potential from a proposed land development north of Dahlgren Road and other nearby land changes created a need for stormwater system improvements to reduce the risk of flooding. A new underground 30-inch stormwater pipe will supplement the existing drainage system in this area. Instead of all runoff flowing into an existing pond, the new pipe will divert a portion of the runoff directly to Carver Creek. The diversion will help protect the existing pond and reduce the risk of flooding while still ensuring sufficient flow to maintain pond water levels.

Area 2: Downtown Improvements

Modifications to the stormwater system in downtown Carver will increase efficiency of the system during large rain events. Improvements will include making new connections between existing stormwater pipes and upgrading a lift station along Lime Street and Main Street.
