Kanab City Council earmarks $16 million to fix storm water woes ... from new rate hike

Kanab City plans to address floodwater mitigation in the coming months by first redoing the retention pond north of Jacob Hamblin Park, followed by projects in the Cedar Heights subdivision, a Swapp Drive retention basin, further work at the mouth of Tom’s Canyon, Stansfield Dr. modifications up to the water tank and completion of the storm drains along 200 North, among possibly others.

The cost of all projected projects is estimated at $16 million, although this is somewhat speculative at this time pending contractual bids for those not being completed by the city alone. Grant money is being explored, and money from the new storm water mitigation charge to city residents will be utilized to fund these projects. Southern Utah News
