Forest Avenue Detention Area Construction Notice

The City would like to notify you of an upcoming project on Forest Avenue near Baxter Woods. The

intent of the project is to modify an existing drainage inlet which currently drains into our combined

sewer system within Forest Avenue. The new 4’ diameter drainage catch basin to be installed will be

used to slow down stormwater flow entering our combined sewer system and will help to reduce

Combined Sewer Overflows into Back Cove during large storm events. The project will begin on

April 24th and take approximately one week to complete. Residents in the area should expect minor

traffic delays around the project work area. It may appear that work is occurring within the Baxter

Woods property, however the location of project is on the Diocesan Bureau of Housing Property. The

City and the Diocesan have agreed to an easement that will allow us to complete the small drainage

project and perform future maintenance in the area. This project was originally part of a larger

Detention Pond project within Baxter Woods, however the City has put the pond project on hold

indefinitely. See the attached project map which will help you identify the location of the project.
