Atherton residents concerned about drainage problems in their neighborhoods or around town can voice those concerns at a community meeting that begins at 6 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 6, in the Atherton Town Council Chambers.
The meeting also will give residents a chance to find out what's already under scrutiny as the town's consultant, NV5, puts together a drainage study and master plan. The consultant will make a presentation and take comments from the public.
According to an announcement about the meeting, the town considers drainage problems to include conditions in which properties are impacted by actual flooding, standing water that doesn't drain within 48 hours following rain, water that threatens roadway safety, and stormwater over-topping a drainage embankment.
Residents who can't attend the meeting but want to provide information about drainage problems can email associate engineer David Huynh at email@example.com by 5 p.m. Feb. 7 with the following information: name, address, drainage issue, and location of the drainage problem (with the nearest street address or intersection, if possible).
The Council Chambers are at 94 Ashfield Road, in the Town Center.
