Standing water conditions have been observed on private property during minor rainfall events.
Standing water conditions have been observed on private property during minor rainfall events. GIS data shows swales along the north and south sides of Alemeda Drive. Existing swales appear to connect at the west to existing catch basins at the intersection of Alemeda Drive and Davis Road, and at the east to existing drainage ditches which lead to Lake Frost. LIDAR data indicates that this portion of Alemeda Drive and the First Presbyterian Church property are lower than adjacent properties.
A SFWMD SWM permit covers the adjacent Village-owned ballfields and municipal complex (Village of Palm Springs Public Plaza, Permit No. 77-00006-S, Application No. 11097-D-2, issued to the Village of Palm Springs). No electronic documents were recovered during an online search of available files. However topographic information of the existing conditions was found within the backup files associated Village of Palm Springs Municipal Complex. Permit No. 50-05428-P, Application No. 020129-9.
An ERP covers area on the west side of Cypress Lane along Alemeda Drive (Village of Palm Springs Municipal Complex, Permit No. 50-05428-P, Application No. 020129-9, issued to the Village of Palm Springs. An electronic copy of the permit was located during a review of available District documents. The church property and intersection of Davis Road and Alemeda Drive were recently included in areas added to the FIRM.
The Village’s decision to improve drainage in this area has been initiated under a separate contract. The design includes installation of catch basins in the southern right-of-way of Alemeda Drive at the First Presbyterian Church driveway. Pipes would convey runoff collected at the church property eastward to an existing ditch which has a direct surface connection to Lake Frost. Final outfall from this area may be dependent on completion of the Area 6: Lake Frost Outfall Improvements described in this document.
Discharge from this area will ultimately outfall to the Lake Worth Drainage District L-8 Canal. Approval by the LWDD will be necessary..
The estimated cost of improvements for Alemeda Drive is $115,000. A detailed Opinion of Probable Construction Cost and Construction Drawings are attached.
