Evening Update – May 10, 2019

Steep Bank Creek pump station – The limited rain today has enabled the pump station, and the trailer mounted pumps to drop the water level below where it was before Thursday night. As you can hopefully tell by the photos undertaking this part of the project 1) for the first time since they were purchased and 2) under inclement weather is a testament to the hard work from our engineering and levee operators.

The weather forecast has changed and indicates heavy rain coming in tomorrow morning instead of overnight. All facilities are operating as expected with additional support in use and on standby. Based on the rain expectations and the pumping power in the district we do not anticipate any issues. We will update everyone if any of the variables change. As a constant reminder, in times of heavy rains street ponding is possible. Please be careful, especially at night, driving during these times. Most importantly, never drive into high standing water.

Home Slab Survey Project Beginning March 4

Beginning Monday, March 4, LID 19 will begin surveying the slab elevation of certain homes within the District. The project will last 2-3 days. Please do not be alarmed by the presence of a field survey crew throughout the District. The field survey crew will be openly and visibly identifiable to all residents.

LID 19 is studying potential improvements for flood protection in the District. To accomplish this goal, topographical analysis of the District’s property is necessary. LID 19 asks for your patience and cooperation while this project is underway.
