MELVINA RESERVOIR UPDATE
The MWRD is in the process of reviewing various alternatives to address the
flooding that has occurred in the vicinity of the Melvina Ditch Reservoir (MDR),
and determine the most efficient and effective ways to mitigate the impacts
of that flooding. The MWRD’s consultant, V3 Companies, is currently
finalizing its analysis of the existing drainage system and MDR expansion
alternatives to determine the benefits and cost associated with different
reservoir expansion configurations.
The Study is considering both horizontal and vertical expansion through
excavation of the reservoir to increase storage for storm water. The
modeling performed as part of V3’s analysis confirms that the upstream
drainage system has limited capacities so additional local drainage
improvements may also be needed.
V3 is currently working to finalize their Preliminary Design Report and
plans to initiate 60% design in March. The MWRD’s goal is to have design
completed and groundbreaking later this year.
