The City of Willowbrook, Kansas, the City of Wichita, Kansas and Benesch design firm propose to install a new stormwater and sanitary sewer improvement within the leveed area of Willowbrook, Kansas (Attachment1 and Attachment 2). The stormwater system will direct all collected flows to the south end of the project, where the system will tie into a pump station, to evacuate the water into Cow Creek. Proposed improvements include the construction of a stormwater pump station force main to be installed through the levee to discharge into Cow Creek (Attachment 3) and the construction of a new sanitary wet well to be constructed at the levee toe (Attachment 4). The alignment of the stormwater lines are located 20 feet or greater from the toe of the levee.
