DPW Installing Clement Avenue Storm Drainage Infrastructure

Saratoga Springs, NY – Department of Public Works Commissioner Jason Golub announced that the installation of new storm water infrastructure is underway on Clement Avenue near the City’s North Side playground.  The storm water project will solve historic flooding issues that occur during major rain events and the spring time snowmelt.

“Flooding  issues  combined  with  a  high  traffic  volume  located  next  to  a  playground  is  a  recipe  for disaster,” said Golub. “The installation of storm water infrastructure will reduce flooding and increase safety. I’m also proud to report that the DPW work force is installing the infrastructure in-house, saving taxpayer dollars and showcasing their capabilities.”

The  storm  water  improvements  were  planned  by  DPW  and  will  be  constructed  using  DPW labor. Funding  for  the  project  comes  from  the  City’s  capital  budget  in  a  dedicated  

line  for  storm  water improvements.  Typical  engineering  cost  estimates  for  similar projects  have  averaged  hundreds  of thousands  of  dollars,  by  performing  the  work  in-house,  the department  estimates  at  completion  the project will cost approximately $30,000 and take two to three weeks.

Residents can contact DPW dispatch at 518-584-3356 with any questions.
