While drainage improvements are part of most street projects, there are other projects that are intended solely to address drainage issues.  The FY 2015-2019 program includes an Annual Stormwater Improvement project which outlines storm water improvements for five major ditches. Also addressed in FY 2015 is the grant-funded project for Shellside Stormwater Management System which will provide detention for the area and the aeration of the Genco Canal to address seasonal odor and algae growth issues.  In FY2017, the Historic District Drainage Improvements project begins with design and construction of the Wisconsin improvements, followed in FY2018-2019 with the design and construction of the primary and secondary Kansas improvements.
