Theme:
Storm Water, Stormwater
Description:
In 2018 the Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission (CCRPC) received grant funding from the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources (VTANR) Clean Water Initiative Program to supplement funds from the Town of Milton to develop a Stormwater Master Plan (SWMP) for Milton. Fitzgerald Environmental Associates, LLC (FEA) was hired by the Town and CCRPC in the summer of 2018 to develop the plan. This final SWMP report for the Town of Milton represents significant efforts and collaborations over the last year between the Town, FEA, CCRPC, VTANR, and other partners, including private landowners and business owners, interested in mitigating stormwater and improving water quality. The goal of this project was to identify and prioritize stormwater improvement projects throughout the Town, with a focus on Town owned properties. Project prioritization followed the Unified Scoring Metrics recently developed by VTDEC (2018a). Conceptual design plans (30% design) were prepared for 15 high-priority projects. Additional phosphorus loading and removal estimates were completed to assist the Town with planning for future efforts to prepare the Phosporus Control Plan.

Colchester Inspection and Inventory of Existing Stormwater System

12.6 MB
Year:
2019
Theme:
capital planning, Stormwater
Description:
Hoyle, Tanner & Associates, Inc. completed stormwater structure and pipe condition assessments and recorded collected data in Town GIS format for future integration with the Town’s Asset Management Program. The overall stormwater infrastructure refurbishment need was identified and a Capital Budget Program for Stormwater Infrastructure was developed for future refinement by Town Staff to aid in future infrastructure planning efforts. Results of a Top Down pipe condition analysis - completed based on pipe material, typical service life and estimated installation year - broadly estimates $5.1M in stormwater infrastructure capital budget need. However, the results of the pipe segment Zoom Camera condition assessments indicate that approximately 75% of this $5.1M in stormwater infrastructure capital budget need had a “Pass” rating. This reveals that a significant amount of the stormwater infrastructure, although exceeding a typical service life, has some service life remaining. There were also Stormwater Pipe Segments that had an Emergency Rating indicating immediate work required. Many of these pipes were not in the $5.1M dollar Top Down evaluation.
