Moores Park Neighborhood Map

The meeting is October 19 at the St. Casimir Church starting at 7pm for residents and property owners in or near the construction area (see map image above – this will affect a good portion of the Moores Park neighborhood) to learn more about the construction and get information including:

  • when work will be conducted in your immediate area (i.e., on your street);
  • where to park your vehicles when construction is on your street;
  • what is the typical duration of construction on a neighborhood block; and
  • why the project is necessary.

Attendess will also have an opportunity to ask questions and discuss any concerns with City officials.

What is the CSO Project?

As part of the City’s comprehensive Wet Weather Control Program (WWCP), a sewer separation and road construction project designed to eliminate combined sewer overflows (CSOs) will begin in your area in the spring of 2018. This project, the CSO 034C Project, will prevent sewage from entering our Grand and Red Cedar Rivers, as well as helping to reduce the frequency of sewer backups into the basements of homes and businesses during severe storms.
