Montrose Outfall Dredge Project (H.Sally Fema Funded)
In September of 2020, Hurricane Sally made landfall along the Gulf Coast, causing widespread damage from wind and excessive rainfall. The runoff experienced in the City was extensive, causing damage to several storm water systems and depositing large amounts of soil and debris in the local waterways. The outfall into Gilmore Bayou received a large amount of soil deposited in the shallow waterway adjacent to the pipe. The soil accumulated there and under an adjacent residential pier. The low flow of bayou at the outfall has prevented the soil from being distributed evenly across the bayou. Staff proposes a small scale dredging project to remove approximately 140 cubic yards at the Montrose Stormwater Outfall.
