Shantee Creek is one of the major tributaries to the western Lake Erie basin. As a result of intense flooding along the corridor in the summer of 2006 due to record amounts of rainfall, the City of Toledo determined it was time to improve conveyance of the creek in several locations. One of the locations was the Detroit Avenue Bridge over the creek. The creek bed was to be widened and deepened at this location. As a result, an existing 10 inch sanitary sewer under the creek needed to be relocated to accommodate the creek improvement. NCI was obtained by ARCADIS to evaluate potential relocation routes along the Detroit Avenue and East Laskey Road corridor. During preliminary design, multiple route locations were studied utilizing existing topographic survey information. Existing utility data was gathered and all the information was combined, analyzed and prepared for presentation to the City of Toledo Engineering Services. Cost estimates were prepared for the various alternatives and an optimum route was selected for detailed design. As a final product, over 1,700 feet of 10” sewer was designed and relocated to a 48” sewer interceptor.
