Stormwater Project Underway at Elmwood Park

Work has started on the stormwater project being done at Elmwood Park. The primary focus now is repairing where the water empties into Wood Creek.

Tree removal is underway where the bioretention gardens are to be placed in the swale on the east end of the southern portion of the golf course.

The stormwater drain is being replaced at the lower extent of the project. The hill is to be reestablished. There will be 84 tons of large rock riprap placed where the water empties into the creek.

The errant tree limbs shown in the creek were being removed by construction personnel during a site visit on October 5th.

This work is being done for $8.1 million, as financed by the City of Omaha.
