Corrales Heights Drainage Improvements

Project Completed May 2015!

The Corrales Heights 4 to 1 pedestrian trail drainage improvements added modifications to existing stormwater inlets along the trail, curb and gutter to maintain stormwater flow along with the installation of sediment retaining walls and regrading of the trail to create a positive slope to the 1st drop inlet structure. Historically, the storm inlets along this trail become clogged during intense rainfall events causing downstream damage. Sediment washes off the steep slopes adjacent to the site adding to the inlet capacity issue and burying the trail.

Prior to the modifications sediment and debris could easily clog the inlet structures.
