Blueprint Hilltop 4

Hilltop has been identified as a Blueprint priority area due to a significant number of basement backup incidences and the sanitary sewer overflow that discharges into Forest Creek/Scioto Big Run. In addition to the four pillars of Blueprint, Hilltop Blueprint includes additional sewer upgrades to address existing deficiencies and severe flooding locations.

Hilltop 4 Project Schedule

Phase 1

Surveying: 2016-2020

Surveyors are in the neighborhood to document water flow patterns, topography, existing utilities, and other residential infrastructure, such as downspouts.

Phase 2

Green Infrastructure Design: 2020-2023

The engineering team identifies the types and locations of green infrastructure that will meet the needs of the neighborhood. During the design phase, we seek resident feedback through surveys, public meetings, and field visits.

Phase 3

Shovels in the Ground: 2023

Construction of green infrastructure involves work in the public right-of-way and street. All neighborhood residents will be notified of anticipated impacts, and Blueprint will send out weekly construction updates to keep everyone informed of the schedule and activities.

Green Infrastructure Construction: 2023

Rain gardens and porous pavement sites are installed. During this time other city infrastructure work may occur, such as waterline upgrades or sidewalk installations.

Lateral Lining and Roofwater Redirection: 2025

Individual homes are assessed for lateral lining and roofwater redirection. These home improvements prevent stormwater from entering the sanitary sewer lines by getting that water away from your home and out to the street, so it can drain to the storm sewer system
