49th and Rentworth Storm Drain Improvements
This project includes the installation of additional storm sewer pipe and inlets. These additions will improve drainage by allowing more water to be removed from the street, which will reduce ponding and street flooding.

Stormwater Improvement Bond Issues
Stormwater improvement bond issues provide for design and construction of urban storm drainage projects, flood reduction projects, stream rehabilitation and waterway work, design and construction of master planned basin projects, water quality projects incorporating best management practices, and preliminary engineering for basin master plans to determine future projects. These improvements reduce stormwater runoff and flooding if major rains occur, reduce flooding impacts from major stream channels, prevent or repair degraded stream channels, and improve water quality.
