The City of Berea is conducting a comprehensive storm and sanitary sewer evaluation in specific areas within the City. This project is being undertaken by the City to help eliminate basement flooding.
URS Corporation, an engineering firm hired by the City, will be conducting the evaluation. Work will include closed circuit television inspection of sewers along with rainfall simulation of public sewers and houses. The house testing will include adding dyed water to some of the downspouts, and area drains or low lying areas of the yard. The project will identify problems within the public sewer system and on private property that are potentially contributing to the flooding.
