Drainage Area Q Phase V Storm Sewer


Project Location:   Deidrick Rd & Irma St (from Parmalee St south) and Chelton Dr (west of Irma St)

Project Budget:       $750,000

Project Schedule:

         Design Start Date            August  2009

         Construction Start Date  Fall 2013

         Project Finish                   Spring 2014


There are 152 acres that drain into Drainage Area "Q." It has been determined that 30 acres of storm water runoff drain from Stow into Kent. Six and a half acres (on the east side of Deidrick Road between West Main Street and Powell Road) are collected by the Phase 3 system.

It is not possible to drain the Phase 5 area to the detention basin constructed in Phase 1. Therefore, the remaining 23.5 acres in Stow along with an additional 18.4 acres from Kent will be routed through Stow and discharged into Fish Creek.

Since the concurrence from our neighboring municipality was necessary, the Kent Engineering Division approached the City of Stow. Fortunately, the City of Stow was sympathetic to our problem, and Stow City Council has agreed to participate with the City of Kent.


This improvement will provide storm sewer improvements on Deidrick, Irma and Chelton, along with a drainage outlet for Verner, Powell, Wilders and Deidrick Road.

This project is being funded in part through the City of Kent Storm Water Utility Fund, property owner assessments and Issue II Grant funding jointly with the City of Stow.


Project Status:
  • The final plans and specifications will be complete in June
  • Final plans and specifications should go to Kent City Council in June for the Resolution of Necessity for the project
