According to this report from the City’s engineering firm, MSA Professional Consultants, the sub-contractor on this project, McClintock Trucking & Excavating, has completed the project.  According to a field report provided by MSA’s Chris Cooper, “The project is complete and conforms to the sketch prepared by MSA and approved by the City of Riverdale.”

The discharge pipe has been moved to a new location, which has since been seeded and blanketed (to prevent erosion). The new location for the pipe means there will be little, if any, water seeping onto Valley Drive this fall and winter.

This report shows the contractor, McClintock Trucking and Excavating, restoring the project site after the excavation and other infrastructure work to install a new drainage structure was completed.

All that is left to do on the site, according to MSA, is to seed the area and submit paperwork to the City for payment.
