The Town of Geddes proposes a green infrastructure project at the Walberta Road School in the Westvale neighborhood. The school sits at a low point with now natural overflow route for stormwater drainage.
Stormwater is diverted down Granger Road to the Onondaga County Trunk Sewer on Bronson Road. This trunk sewer currently surcharges during severe storms due to large amounts of inflow and infiltration. The proposed project would divert water to an infiltration basin for storage.
The infiltration/detention basin is on Wegman’s property and the Town of Geddes is currently working to finalize a right-of-way agreement with Wegman’s.
