PERRYSBURG — The City of Perrysburg is planning to complete ditch maintenance activities on Eckel Road that will begin after Thursday – weather and schedule permitting.
This project is necessary to ensure that stormwater is adequately conveyed away from personal property, streets, and sidewalks to protect the health and safety of our community.
City crews will be dredging sediments from the bottom of the ditch on the west side of Eckel Road, south of the railroad tracks. Traffic will be maintained.
Excess surface and subsurface water must be removed through manmade ditches to prevent flooding and these drainage corridors must be maintained. Drainage on one property can significantly impact drainage of neighboring properties. Nearby residents have been notified by mail.
The city makes every effort to minimize impacts to the environment and surrounding easement areas when completing these maintenance activities; however, it is possible that some trees or structures in the right-of-way could be impacted by the project.
