Environment, Stormwater, Technical Assistance
In accordance with the agreement between the Town of Jericho, the Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission (CCRPC), and Hoyle, Tanner & Associates, Inc. (Hoyle, Tanner), this Final Design Report has been prepared to synthesize previous deliverables and to provide 100% Design Plans for development of two stormwater Best Management Practices (BMPs) within the Town Green located in Jericho Center. Preparation of this report was funded through a Design Implementation Block grant from the Vermont DEC Clean Water Initiative Program administered by the Mount Ascutney Regional Commission and through funds from the Town of Jericho. The following general purpose and need statements has been developed based on our initial meeting with Town and CCRPC Staff in 2019. Purpose The purpose for this project is to provide stormwater treatment for the Bolger Hill Road area and aid in the reduction of erosion that is currently occurring along Bolger Hill Road and to reduce the sediment accumulation at its intersection with Jericho Center Circle. Need The need for the project is to reduce the gravel, which comes from Bolger Hill Road, that gets washed into the Town Green and abutters properties after large storm events. The Town would like to improve the water quality in this area through the construction of Best Management Practices (BMPs) within this project. Goals The Goal of the project is to develop 100% Design Plans and Engineer’s Estimate of Probable Construction Costs for delivery to the Town and CCRPC. A Drainage study was completed by Hoyle, Tanner in January 2020 and was titled Drainage Alternatives Study, Bolger Hill Road Drainage Improvement Project, Jericho, Vermont (see link in Appendix A).
