Below you will see the work setting up the twelve (12) additional pumps being deployed at Steep Bank Creek.
These are new pumps to aid the speed of water removal. The existing pumps in LID 19 are working at full capacity and will continue to work with the supplemental pumps for the duration of the storm event. Please keep in mind that water levels in Steep Bank Creek may appear to be static — as water leaves the watershed through the pump station, additional water from upstream sources will continue to flow downstream.
We will update if there are changes, but it is vital for people in the community to have accurate information directly from the LID.
To be clear…
- All pumps in LID 19 are working as prescribed. The pumps are keeping up with the water flowing downstream.
- The new pumps will assist in expediting water removal.
- To date, there has been no structural flooding in LID 19 or LID 15.
