West Hartford

Drainage Study Phase I

The Town of West Hartford’s consultant, CDM Smith, completed this storm drainage study. Several areas within the study area experience continual street and basement flooding. The purpose of the study is to identify the extent of the deficiencies in the existing Town storm drainage system that result in street flooding.  The Phase I study includes focus (watershed) areas 1, 2 and 3 on this map. The drainage study collected, reviewed, and analyzed existing data, including available plans, aerial photography, topographic mapping, and storm pipe video assessments for the project area. Based on the data collected, a drainage model of the existing storm drainage system was developed. The objectives of the study are to reduce the occurrences of street and basement flooding if possible and disconnect “clean water” from the sanitary sewer system and connect it into the improved storm drainage system.

Phase I of the study, which started in June of 2019 is complete.
