Feasibility Study and Design Concepts to Mitigate Flooding North of Dunn's Marsh

Background Information:

The area north of Dunn’s Marsh has experienced several flooding issues over the last decade. Concerns have included flooding of Crescent Road generally between Equity Lane and Red Arrow Trail, blowouts of Renaissance Pond, and flooding of several structures off of Crescent Road.

The purpose of this study is to determine options to reduce flooding of streets, reduce first floor flooding of structures adjacent to the road, and reduce the frequency of blowouts of Renaissance Pond. Other concerns in this area may be discovered as a result of input during Public Information Meetings.


Project Description:

The City of Fitchburg is requesting proposals from qualified consultants to perform a comprehensive drainage study to identify and assess the feasibility of various solutions to improve flood concerns north of Dunn’s Marsh, assess permitting feasibility, prepare cost estimates, and conduct public outreach meetings.
