Eastwood Flood Control Program – Notes from 8/10/2015 Meeting

August 24th, 2015

Response to the “Let’s Talk Sewers” August 10 Meeting

The City of Syracuse DPW is asking for input — Take the Flood Survey

From: ENA Residential Property Conservation Committee (RPCC)
Date: August 19, 2015


The meeting was organized by ENA’s Residential Property Conservation Committee (RPCC) in response to the public concern about increased flooding and sewer backups in Eastwood after two exceptional storms in May and June. It was attended by 170 residents, most of whom were affected by the recent and previous flooding. City and county officials responsible for storm and sanitary drainage systems presented information about the operation of the system. Many residents expressed frustration with the lack of action to resolve a chronic problem—especially when the problem has existed in the past and will certainly be worse with more frequent violent storms in the future.

Based on the information presented at the meeting, the RPCC plans to review the following potential actions in preparation for additional public meetings:

  1. Action steps to be explored with the public agencies from the City and the County:
    1. Analyze the Eastwood watershed to determine water flow capacity to handle future storms
    2. Prepare a capacity plan based on the severity of the recent storms
    3. Determine alternatives for developing a plan. Possibilities might include:
      • A drainage retention basin similar to Velasko Road or deep-well storage facilities
      • A drainage channel similar to the Meadowbrook channel
      • An expansion of the existing system to increase capacity
    4. Develop specific programs:
      • A financing program for flood control improvements for individual properties at low interest
      • A program to reduce costs for improvements through volume purchases / contracts
      • A maintenance program for scheduled clean-outs of individual property sewer lines
      • A pre-flood emergency catch-basin cleaning program based on immediate warnings
  2. Action steps to be researched with Eastwood residents:

    1. Install rain barrels to divert downspouts from cellar with possible volume discounts
    2. Replace lawns that don’t absorb water with rain gardens—contact “Save the Rain” for guidance
    3. Request a meeting to review specific flooding problems with city/county technical staff in response to cases where residents were told that there was “nothing to be done.” Or “it’s your problem….”
    4. Attend next RPCC meeting to follow up on flood insurance issues
    5. Install check valve and sump pumps with financing from the financing program in #4 above
    6. Request city preventive maintenance on a regular basis
  3. Actions to be initiated by ENA:

    1. Put a preliminary action plan on the website for general information.
    2. Contact everyone who signed up by email.
    3. Form a working group to meet with city and county, including elected representatives, to consider Items 1 – 4 above.
    4. Get a map from the county that shows drainage that be could posted on the ENA Website or circulated.
    5. Schedule a general committee meeting for follow up, including a session on flood insurance
    6. Set up a survey website with assistance offered by Kirk Knestis from Hezel Associates
    7. Work for the creation of a city agency to review Eastwood’s sewer problems with city technical representatives to improve communication and address individual flooding issues.
