Project Description

This drainage channel is located on outlots owned by the Green Meadows West Homeowners Association, and runs between Hadfield Circle and Heather Bow west of Foxboro Road and Heather Bow and Tiburon Circle east of Foxboro Road. The purpose of the project would be to correct erosion and to stabilize the stream banks from the outlet of the storm sewer project completed in 2010 easterly to Beaver Creek.

Project Funding

The Green Meadows West Central Channel Stabilization stormwater improvements are funded by the Johnston Stormwater Utility, which was implemented in July 2012 to create a dedicated funding source for projects that reduce erosion, protect properties and infrastructure from flooding and to improve water quality within the City of Johnston, for more information on the stormwater utility, visit the stormwater projects page.
