Greater South Haven Storm Water Management Projects (map and details pending)

Old South Haven Storm Water Management System Rehabilitation
The Department has undertaken an important effort to repair and reconstruct the storm water management system serving Old South Haven, which is located in unincorporated Porter County, and is bounded by US 6 to the north, SR 149 to the east, CR 700 N to the south, and McCool Rd. to the west.

Porter County's "2010 Countywide Comprehensive Drainage Plan" identified Old South Haven as one of the top ten areas within the County needing storm water and drainage infrastructure improvements.  At that time, numerous reports of flooding by both residents and county officials and an increasing number of sinkholes caused by failing storm water infrastructure indicated the need for closer inspection of the area and led to the development of a rehabilitation plan to guide future repair and reconstruction efforts.  The result was the "2012 Old South Haven Stormwater Collection System Rehabilitation and Capacity Planning Study" (Study).

The Study, which is available for review below, documented the location of the known flooding and drainage issues within Old South Haven and identified the existing configuration of the storm water management system serving the area.  It also identified a variety of capital improvement projects that could be implemented to address the deteriorating condition of the storm water and drainage infrastructure serving the area and listed such projects in order of priority and importance.  The department is pursuing the implementation of all of the recommended capital improvement projects and, based on the prioritization provided in the Study, has broken the projects up into two phases.

Those projects in Phase 1 include: Northeast Storm Sewer Project (i.e. Pipe Lining Project "A" (partially completed), Governor Rd./LaHonda Dr./Heritage Rd./Pittsburg Ave. Storm Sewer Project (partially completed); Pipe Lining Project (i.e. Pipe Lining Project "B", Pipe Lining Project "C", Pipe Lining Project "D"; Squirrel Creek Diversion & Midway drive Detention Basin Expansion Project; Squirrel Creek Improvements Project; and, South Central Storm Sewer Project.

Those projects in Phase 2 include: Fremont Rd. Storm Sewer Project; Long Run Rd. Storm Sewer Project; and, Raritan Dr. Storm Sewer Project.

Additional information about the projects included in Phase 1 of the Old South Haven Storm Water Management System Rehabilitation is provided in the documents below. 



Additional information about the status of each of the projects included in Phase 1 of the Old South Haven Storm Water Management System Rehabilitation is provided in the documents below.


Northeast Storm Sewer Project
At this point, planning and design work has been completed on one of the projects included in Phase 1!  The project, which has been designated as the Northeast Storm Sewer Project, will generally affect the area bound by US 6 to the north, IN 149 to the east, Midway Dr. to the south, and Imperial Rd. to the west, and it is ready to begin!

The first segment of the Northeast Storm Sewer Project that will get underway is work on Governor Rd.  This segment of the project will include the installation of a new storm sewer and complete roadway reconstruction on Governor Rd. between LaHonda Dr. and Midway Dr.  All of the work will generally take place within the right-of-way associated with Governor Rd., but since it will involve the installation of a new storm sewer and complete roadway reconstruction, it will also necessarily involve disturbance to, and closure of, roadways, driveway approaches, and sidewalks along the project reach.

The contractor, Grimmer Construction, is scheduled to begin work on this segment during the week of November 12, 2018.  The contractor will begin mobilizing and preparing for the work during the week of November 5, 2018.

New South Haven, Coventry & Salt Creek Commons Storm Water Management System Studies
Along with our recently initiated effort to repair and reconstruct the storm water management system serving Old South Haven, the Porter County Department of Development & Storm Water Management (Department) will also be undertaking an effort to study the storm water management systems serving the remainder of the neighborhoods within the greater South Haven, including New South Haven, Coventry, and Salt Creek Commons.  These studies will be developed to better understand the storm water management/drainage infrastructure serving these neighborhoods, identify drainage and storm water management problems within these neighborhoods, and outline a plan for completing necessary maintenance activities and capital improvement projects within these neighborhoods.  The studies will be similar to the "2012 Old South Haven Stormwater Collection System Rehabilitation and Capacity Planning Study", which was created to guide the storm water management system repair and reconstruction efforts that are currently getting underway in Old South Haven.
