New Drainage System Solves Flooding Issues In Acampo

From ABC10How it works is rainwater is collected in drains alongside Acampo Road through the heart of town. More than 5,000 feet of underground pipe feeds the water into giant underground storage sump pump facility next to the Highway 99 frontage Road north of Heritage Road.  If necessary, the water is then released into an existing concrete ditch that parallels the frontage road. The hope down the road is to capture and save the water. The project was paid in full with local road district funds and federal grant money. It’s been so successful, it’s actually award-winning. Just last year, it won Project of the Year from the American Public Works Association in the Environment – Flood Control Category. (more)
