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.
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.
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.
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).
