The plan since 1970

November 2, 2016

The stormwater flow from Oakland County into Macomb County is based on an old plan conceived way back in the 1960’s and 1970’s.  Therein lies the heart of the problem. NO ONE has really ever thought differently since then. Everyone has just “dealt with it” because it was a pre-existing notion set in motion. Time for Oakland County to deal with its sewer issue, by itself, independent of Macomb County.  Accountability must occur at some point, instead of constantly kicking the can down the road, over and over again.

Notice that ELEVATION restriction , when the Red Run drain hits 613 ft  ?

The Red Run Drain routinely hits 620 ft above sea level the past few years.

Any drain connected to it, suffers the consequences of water elevation at 620ft

The Beaumont Troy hospital as well as Oakland Mall, drain into the Clinton River, with the Dequindre Road borderline clearly displayed by the Twelve Towns District Boundary.

I wonder how much TOTAL VOLUME actually comes out of the concrete structure below Dequindre Road in a major rain storm of 3 to 4 inches over Oakland County — AND why can’t more of it be diverted to Detroit , via the Dequindre Interceptor  ?
