Evergreen Park Drainage and Water Quality Improvements
The Fairview Avenue storm sewer system is under capacity and stormwater runoff reaches the pipe faster than the pipes can convey the water downstream. This causes the system to surcharge, causing arterial street flooding, local street flooding, inundation of open spaces, as well as private property damage. This storm sewer system is directly connected to several significant regional water bodies.
The proposed improvements at Evergreen Park will consist of an underground storage chamber and a storm water re-use system to irrigate the ball fields. This will reduce the volume of water in the storm sewer system, improve water quality and provide an opportunity for stormwater re-use for irrigation. Above ground bioretention basins will also be constructed to provide additional improvement to water quality and volume reduction, and also serve as an educational area in the park that can be utilized by both Roseville Parks and Recreation programs as well as Brimhall Elementary School.
