Neighborhood Sanitary Sewer Capital Improvement Project


Powell CWM assisted the City of Independence with a Capital Improvement Project to address drainage problems at a number of sites within the City and involving a number of stakeholders including the City Water Pollution Control and Public Works Departments, City Council Members, a private business owner, church, various homeowner’s associations, and private citizens.

The analysis included site inspections; review of Customer Service Request Reports, City GIS data, and information obtained from the various utility providers; and input from constituents obtained during public meetings. The various design alternatives proposed for the various sites ranged included pipe and structure removal and replacement; pipe relining; creation of a small regional detention basin; gabion walls; roadside ditch grading; driveway culvert removal and replacement and; lake dredging, aeration, forebay creation, and littoral zone planting.

Multi-Use Trail, Sidewalks to City Parks Project


Services included Land Surveying and Civil Engineering for a 2,000 foot long multi-use trail. Bringing our knowledge in the design and engineering of bicycle facilities and urban streetscapes, we were able to create a functional, safe, and aesthetically engaging benefit to the City of Independence. Powell CWM designers provided problem-solving solutions at all stages of this project, from planning and conceptual design, to creating design standards, to producing construction documents for implementation. Trails and greenways are beneficial to our communities by making them more livable; improve the economy through tourism and civic improvement; preserve and restore open spaces; and provide opportunities for physical activities to improve fitness and mental health.
