Shoal Creek repairs move forward

Monday, July 16, 2018 by Elizabeth Pagano

Last week, Interim Watershed Protection Department Director Michael Personett had an update on May’s Shoal Creek landslide. In a July 11 memo to the mayor and City Council, Personett said that there had been more erosion, but that had “not noticeably affected the stability of the upper slope.” As for fixing the problem, that’s in process. Though the city does not yet have a start date, it’s expected the project will last about six months. A public meeting, tentatively scheduled for July 19, will share more information on the “evolving details of the plan to restore the damaged drainage and wastewater infrastructure and mitigate the safety hazard posed by the instability of the slope after the landslide.”
