September 23, 2016 Update
Posted on September 23, 2016 at 3:14 PM by Mitch Beaumont
The initial construction of the channel rehabilitation project is complete. Establishment of vegetation will be an ongoing process. The native grasses take several seasons to get established. The City has a maintenance contract with a landscaping company to help in this process and additional seeding in the spring of 2017 is anticipated.
A landscaping contract for Thompson Creek Plantings Phase One has been awarded. This will provide shrubs, ornamental trees, and understory trees along rear property lines of residences abutting Thompson Creek based on the planting plans that were shown to property owners last fall. These plantings are anticipated to be installed in October of this year.
Four wetland basins were constructed at storm sewer outlets for the purpose of filtering storm water runoff. These are holding water more than anticipated and the consultants have been asked to prepare modifications of the wetlands to try to reduce the amount of ponding. In the meantime, City staff is applying mosquito larvicide treatments to these basins.
The City has entered a joint agreement with the City of Papillion to conduct storm water public education and outreach in 2016. Displays have been provided at the Salute to Summer, at La Vista Public Works Expo on June 11, at Papillion Days and at a couple of Papillion Farmers’ Markets. A display was also provided at the World O’ Water on September 10 at Wehrspann Lake where more than 2400 citizens visited that event. More events for school classes and senior citizen groups are planned for this fall.
Repairs to the large corrugated metal culvert that carry Thompson Creek under 72nd Street will be starting the week of September 26, 2016 to extend the life of the culvert. No lane closures or disruption to traffic is expected for that work.
Here are a few photos of the current construction status.
