The Town of Greenwich Department of Public Works (DPW) today announced that construction for the Pemberwick Park Drainage Area Improvements Project will commence on October 9, 2023. Work will include pipe installation, headwall modifications, and trash rack replacement. Restoration of the ball field, park turf, sidewalk, curbing, and pavement will take place upon completion of the installation of the new drainage pipe.
Following the impacts of Tropical Storm Ida DPW reviewed several areas in the Town, including the Pemberwick Park drainage area, for alternatives to reduce the impacts of future storms. This project aims to improve drainage and prevent erosion during large storm events in the Pemberwick Park area. Prior to the design phase of the project, a detailed Storm Water Management Model (SWMM) watershed and hydraulic conveyance model analysis was performed to evaluate existing and proposed conditions.
Project construction is funded through the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA). The contractor for this project is FGB Construction of Norwalk, Connecticut. Town of Greenwich Department of Public Works Civil Engineer, Sean Cardwell, is the project manager.
