Pittsford stormwater system design finalized

The Rutland Regional Planning Commission (RRPC) in partnership with Enman Kesselring Consulting Engineers recently announced the final design of a stormwater runoff retention system in Pittsford. The goal of the project was to design a system to capture, treat, and infiltrate stormwater runoff from the drainage area that includes the Lothrop School, associated parking lots, portions of Pleasant Street, and the southern half of the fire station property, a drainage area of about seven acres.

Stormwater from this area is currently discharged under Mechanic Street to the Sugar Hollow Brook.

For most storms, the proposed design will divert stormwater to a bioretention system.
