Initial open channel cleanout efforts have been performed on the Bauer Drain. Work started east of Mt. Pleasant Road at the drain’s confluence with the Doan Creek Drain. Soil erosion control measures were installed to prevent sediment from leaving the work area. Crews performed 2,265 feet of open channel cleanout work to a point 800 feet west of Mt. Pleasant Road. Sediment removed from the drain is being spoiled, leveled, seeded and treated with polymer within the drain right-of-way. The contractor is now awaiting pipe delivery to start storm sewer construction estimated for June 1, 2021.
