Flooding Relief Projects Underway In Parma Heights
Basement flooding has been an issue for many residents in Parma Heights, and we are actively working on multiple solutions to help alleviate these issues. After three long years of working with the federal government, the City of Parma Heights received official approval for the Nathan Hale Retention Basin Project. We hope to break ground within the next six months once the bidding process is completed. Work will begin on the relining of a portion of the Blossom Avenue sanitary sewer line in order to reduce inflow and infiltration of stormwater into the sanitary sewer system, and the city is partnering with the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District for the construction of a detention basin behind Maplewood Road. These projects should help reduce basement flooding for both Parma Heights and Parma residents in that area of our cities. We are fortunate to have great partners, like the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District, who assist us with projects that benefit our community as well as surrounding communities. We will continue to fight for flooding relief and solutions to help our community.
