CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. - More work related to Charlottetown’s ditch infilling program on Stockman Drive was required to solve flooding issues on Trailview Drive in November.
It was identified that the downstream storm water flows unpiped from the Stockman Drive system, under the Confederation Trail, to the backyard of homes on Trailview.
Residents have been complaining that their backyards end up flooding after a rain event due to the storm water from Stockman being diverted to this area.
With the current project, piping more storm water to this area will cause greater flooding concerns for these homes on Trailview.
As such, the consultant has completed a design for the area and requested a price for the work.
The additional work will cost $42,500 for construction and $6,555 in consulting fees.
