Glencoe city council looks at next steps for stormwater issues

The Glencoe City Council heard a presentation on the central stormwater system from Short Elliot Hendrickson (SEH) Project Manager John Rodeberg on Monday night. 
 
Rodeberg presented initial modeling on the central corridor, which runs from about 16th Street to Highway 212,  that the city will use to determine its next steps to help relieve stormwater issues. 
 
One option SEH modeled was replacing the central corridor pipe with a 48-inch pipe. Rodeberg said this would impact the amount of time the area experienced flooding, but would not have much impact on the height of flooding.
 
Another option SEH looked at was increasing the pipe to 60-inches near the Highway 212 outlet and putting in 48-inch to 60-inch pipe through the rest of the area.
 
This option would also add a surge basin on the west side of the tracks where informal flooding already occurs. This option would require permits from the Minnesota Department of Transportation and the Buffalo Creek Watershed.
