Worth Noting - April 2019


Gibbs & Olson (Washington) hired T.J. Griggs as a project engineer. Among his projects are analysis and design of stormwater detention and treatment systems.

The town of Batavia received $255,172 for its Bigelow Creek Headwaters Improvement Project from the New York State Department of Environmental Conversation’s Climate Smart Communities Grants Program. The town is planning to install various stormwater management practices such as check dams, creek bed enhancements, native vegetation and a stormwater treatment pond within the Bigelow Creek watershed as part of the improvement project.

The village of Sherman received $18,000 from the New York State Department of Environmental Conversation’s Climate Smart Communities Grants Program. The funds will be used in part to incorporate policies and actions to protect stormwater infrastructure.

The city of Somerville (Massachusetts) received a $500,000 MassWorks Infrastructure Program grant for a project that will modernize a 140-year-old sewer system and enable separated stormwater and sewer service to support the redevelopment of Boynton Yards.

The Oak Brook Park District’s Central Park received the Outstanding Facility and Park Award from the Illinois Park and Recreation Association. The district received the honor for renovations made during the Central Park Improvement Project. The expanded and accessible permeable paver lot and bioswale adjacent to the new playground provided enough compensatory stormwater storage that additional retention ponds were not required.
