The City has two alleys located near flood prone areas in the downtown area. Both alleys are located within three blocks or the Straight River, a water body listed on the 303(d) list for both turbidity and fecal coliform impairments. The native soil located in this area is sand, which provides for increased infiltration.
The City will study of different reconstruction and repaving approaches for these three alleys:.
- Porous asphalt
- Porous concrete
- Standard imperious paving
