Project Location: Deidrick Rd & Irma St (from Parmalee St
south) and Chelton Dr (west of Irma St)
Project Budget: $750,000
Design Start Date
Construction Start Date Fall 2013
Project Finish Spring
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
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.
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
