Philo OKs more investigation into drainage solutions

PHILO — The village board has authorized the village engineer to continue investigating solutions to a drainage issue on the east end of town.

Village Engineer Dave Atchley presented the board with three possible solutions to the problems, which are occurring around the intersection of Washington and Cleveland streets.

The first would involve installing storm sewers of diameters varying between 12 and 36 inches at a cost of $238,315.20.

The second would involve erosion control, pond excavation and installing storm sewers of diameters varying between 4 and 36 inches at a cost of $460,913.45.

The third would include installing a 36-inch double-wall field tile, a road crossing and tile repair and connection. With court, attorney and engineering fees, it would cost $817,765. The 14,600 feet of tile would drain east out of town into the South Fork Drainage District. Cost sharing has been discussed with the drainage district, Atchley said.
