Near East

Begin Surveying in 2036

Blueprint Near East

Near East 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, Near East Blueprint includes additional sewer upgrades to address existing deficiencies and severe flooding locations.

Project Areas

Near East is bounded by Norfolk Southern Corporation and Woodward Ave. to the north, Brentnell Ave., Norfolk Southern, and N. Nelson Rd. to the east, E. Broad St. the south and N. Champion and Columbus & Ohio River Railroad to the west.

Near East

Will begin surveying in 2036.

Phase 1

Surveying: 2036

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: 2038

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

Sump Pump Installations Begin: 2039

Homeowners can sign up to have a sump pump installed in their home, free of charge. Sump pumps keep stormwater away from the home’s foundation and out of the sanitary sewer.

Green Infrastructure Construction: 2040

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: 2043

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

See What’s Planned

Blueprint uses green infrastructure [WLR1] to capture rainwater from the street and clean it before it continues to our rivers and streams. The types and locations of green infrastructure are unique to each neighborhood. See the maps below for the current neighborhood plans:
