General Updates

  • Several streets are slated for repaving in conjunction with Department of Public Service. Repaving schedules are currently being finalized with the contractor in most areas. Residents will receive notice from approximately one week before work will begin.
  • Plantings in ALL AREAS will be evaluated at multiple intervals this spring, and any plants not thriving will be replaced.
  • Inlet protections for storm sewer inlets will remain until construction has ended and disturbed sites are stabilized. Please do not tamper with or remove them, they are required construction site controls to keep sediment and debris from the construction activities out of the storm sewer. Newly constructed rain garden inlets are also initially blocked with straw waddles to allow the plants to get established and stabilized before becoming fully functional. All inlet protections will be removed by the contractor when allowed.
  • The rain gardens are designed to drain in 48 hours or less. Some standing water within the garden after a rain event is normal. However, if the rain gardens are overflowing or have standing water for more than 2 days, please report that to blueprint@columbus.gov
  • Just like a normal storm drain, the rain gardens can’t do their job if leaves/debris are piling up and blocking water from entering the inlet. Our crews will clear these inlets during regular maintenance, but if you see leaves piling up and blocking the rain garden inlets, feel free to push them aside to allow rain water to enter. And, as always, remember to keep leaves and yard waste out of the streets as much as possible.
